Global CO2 emissions continue to rise – but at a slower pace

The global emissions of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) has increased, according to a study, in 2019, again. In comparison to the previous years, have slowed down the increase, however, resulted in calculations of the research network "Global Carbon Project".

The scientists are predicting for this year, with an increase in emissions of 0.6 per cent, albeit within a margin of Uncertainty. That would be significantly less than in the previous year: in 2018, there was an increase of 2.1 percent.

climate scientists say that it is turning rapidly, a trend of the CO2 had to be, if global warming is to remain reasonably controllable. Currently, the 25 will be held in Madrid. UN climate change conference.

Less

2015 burned has agreed with the international community in the Paris climate agreement to limit global warming well below two degrees – but since then, the CO2 increased emissions substantially. It continues, it is likely to be in the middle between 3 and 4 degrees warmer with probably catastrophic consequences.

According to the new projection of the verb, especially the European Union and the U.S. ran in this year less coal, in India and China, the increase in coal consumption has slowed down at least. In addition, the economy in the world grew slower and slower, it says in the report. The emissions still increased, was according to the researchers, the fact that more natural gas and more oil were used.

emissions from land-use

The calculations of the international research network should be published on Wednesday in the journals Nature Climate Change, "Environmental Research Letters" and "Earth System Science Data". Also, the emissions from the land use driven CO2 up, such as increased Fires in the Amazon region.

The concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere increases, therefore, also more. You will reach in the year expected to be a value of 410 ppm (parts per million: parts per Million). It was then 47 per cent above the pre-industrial value. (chk/sda)
