Almost every nation falls behind in efforts to combat climate change, most of them far short, and it is unlikely the world will keep warming within internationally agreed limits, a new science report says.

Only one nation – tiny African Gambia – is on track to cut emissions and provide its share of policy measures to stop the world from surpassing the Paris accord goal of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius since pre-industrial times, the report said.

Only one developed country-Britain-is anywhere near being able to do what it should to curb heat-storage gas emissions and finance clean energy for poorer countries.

China, the world’s largest carbon emitter, and India, the third highest carbon polluter, characterized the report as “mostly inadequate,” or roughly consistent with 4 degrees Celsius warming since preindustrial times.

“That momentum has not been maintained,”Bill Hare

“That dynamic was unsustainable,” said co-author Bill Hare, CEO of Climate Analytics.
