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.

Report launch: A stress test for coal in Europe under the Paris Agreement

We're launching a new report that elaborates a strategy for phasing-out coal in the European Union and its member states and provides a science based shut-down schedule of coal power plants in line with the Paris Agreement long-term temperature goal. Join us for a discussion with report authors and European political decision makers and diverse civil society actors.

What’s on the science agenda for the IPCC Special Report on 1.5°C in agriculture

Since the adoption of the Paris Agreement with its 1.5°C temperature limit, climate scientists are preparing a comprehensive assessment of the impacts of climate change under 1.5ºC warming in global average temperature. Here’s an overview of what we already know and what we would need to learn from the IPCC Special Report on 1.5°C due in 2018 regarding impacts on agriculture.

Climate change taking big bite out of alpine glaciers

Climate change taking big bite out of alpine glaciersDeutsche Welle

Across the Alps, glaciers have lost half their volume since 1900. And there is no letting up: Melting has accelerated since 1980. Most Alpine glaciers will be gone by the end of this century, scientists say. There is already enough heat-trapping pollution in the air to melt nearly all the ice, even if greenhouse gas emissions are cut to zero immediately, said climate physicist Carl-Friedrich Schleussner, who works as a scientific advisor for the NGO Climate Analytics.

China, EU reaffirm climate pledges after Trump backs away

China, EU reaffirm climate pledges after Trump backs awayReuters

Nations led by China and the European Union rallied around a global plan to slow climate change on Wednesday after U.S. President Donald Trump began undoing Obama-era plans for deep cuts in U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. U.S. greenhouse gas emissions fell 11 percent from 2005-15. Bill Hare, head of the Climate Analytics think-tank, said they may remain at current levels by 2030 with Trump's policies.
