Climate talks a ‘catalyst’ for action to limit warming

The United Nations climate negotiations in November are a key catalyst for pushing urgent action to contain global warming, a global coalition of 40 energy producers, industry executives and financial institutions declared Thursday.

A report by the Energy Transitions Commission (ETC) outlines six measures that have been agreed at COP26, which must be implemented this decade to give the world a 50 percent chance of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.8 degrees U.S.) and a 90 percent chance of keeping it below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit).

In 2015, governments agreed to limit average temperature increases to well below 2 degrees Celsius, and to undertake efforts to limit them to 1.5 degrees Celsius (1.3 degrees Fahrenheit), the threshold that scientists said would avert the worst effects of global warming on the planet and its inhabitants.
