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.

Natural gas can’t help to curb climate change

Natural gas can’t help to curb climate changeClimate News Network

Natural gas will have to be phased out along with coal if the world is to be kept safe from dangerous climate change. And that seems likely to have to happen far sooner than most official forecasts, according to a new report. If countries want to reach their Paris Agreement goals of limiting the long-term world temperature rise to 1.5°C, then many of the proposals to increase gas production and distribution will be unnecessary. New terminals and pipelines will never be fully used and will become stranded assets.
