A damning new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC
) has laid out a very ambitious target for the world if it is to keep avoid climate change catastrophe in the near future. According to Global Carbon Project
, in 2017, projected global CO2 emissions were 35.5 billion tonnes. Over the next 12 years, by 2030, this would have to drop by 45 percent to 17.9 billion and then come down to 0.0 by 2050.
