EU Coal Phase Out

When should the EU shut down its 300+ coal plants to meet the Paris Agreement's long-term temperature limit? Our new report outlines a science-based schedule for a coal phase-out in Europe.

Ratification Tracker

The Paris Agreement has entered into force in November 2016, when the double threshold of 55 countries and 55% global emissions was crossed. We continue to track the progress of ratification on this page.

Toward rapid decarbonisation: key steps to get on the 1.5°C pathway

This event will focus on what is needed for rapid decarbonisation for the world to get onto a 1.5°C pathway, in line with the Paris Agreement. Our analysts will present the benefits of the 1.5°C limit, demonstrate the latest positive technological and political developments and outline concrete steps for rapid decarbonisation. It will also discuss the key political moments that provide opportunities to move climate action forward.

“It’s complicated” – loss and damage in the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report

The draft outline of the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report doesn’t contain an explicit reference to loss and damage but will deal with “residual risks”, “adaptation limits” and “attribution.” Should this outline be adopted at the next IPCC plenary, it would be a missed opportunity to bring the entire spectrum of loss and damage available in the scientific literature into focus and support vulnerable countries in preparing do deal with it.

China, India to Reach Climate Goals Years Early, as U.S. Likely to Fall Far Short

China, India to Reach Climate Goals Years Early, as U.S. Likely to Fall Far ShortInside Climate News

Slowing coal use in China and India has put the world's two most populous countries on track to beat their carbon emission goals under the Paris climate agreement, according to a new analysis. That would be enough to more than offset the relatively poor performance expected from the United States as President Donald Trump rolls back controls and puts the U.S. on track to miss its Paris pledge.

Cancellations of coal plants mean the world’s two largest countries are cutting emissions faster than predicted a year ago, the changes exceeding the effect of US policy rollbacks. Dr Bill Hare, CEO of Climate Analytics, said the changes in China and India “if continued and accelerated” meant it would be possible to stop the world warming more than 1.5C – the most ambitious goal of the Paris agreement and one seen as essential to saving coral reefs and low lying island nations.

China and India “are going to slow the global growth in CO2 emissions significantly, the United States’ actions under President Trump will offset that a bit, but not sufficient to actually stop that slowing of the global growth of emissions,” said Bill Hare, CEO of Climate Analytics and a senior scientist with the organization, at a Monday news conference to introduce the new findings.
