THE GLOBAL CAR­BON BUD­GET

Vocable (All English) - - Le Dessin Décryptage -

A re­port from The Global Car­bon Pro­ject, made pub­lic last month, found that global car­bon emis­sions jumped to a record high in 2018. The re­port’s au­thors – 76 sci­en­tists from 57 re­search in­sti­tu­tions in 15 coun­tries – said that more coal-burn­ing in China and In­dia and a grow­ing num­ber of cars on the roads ac­counted for the in­crease. Emis­sions were up 6.3% in In­dia, 4.7% in China and 2.5% in the US for the year but all the coun­tries con­trib­uted to the rise. How­ever, ac­cord­ing to the Global Car­bon Pro­ject sci­en­tists, this trend can still be turned around by 2020, if cuts are made in trans­port and in­dus­try emis­sions.
