Daily Telegraph: " 'Gigatonne gap' risks dangerous global warming"

Link to Daily Telegraph

"The United Nations (UN) brought together more than 50 scientists, to calculate the so-called ‘gigatonne gap’ between how much countries have pledged to cut carbon, and what the science says is needed to avoid devastating global warming.

"The report found that if the world wants to limit temperature rise to 2C, the point at which it is generally agreed climate change will cause more floods, droughts and other problems, then global emissions should peak at 44 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) by 2020."
