Interview with Bill Hare on BBC Radio 4 Today

More than 140 countries have set out how they propose to cut their carbon emissions. The plans are being published ahead of December’s climate talks in Paris. An analysis by four research organisations called Climate Action Tracker suggests that if they met their promises temperatures would rise 2.7 degrees above pre-industrial levels, much higher than the 2 degrees that is considered safe.

Nick Nuttall is spokesperson for the United Nations body overseeing Paris climate talks.

Bill Hare is from Climate analytics one of the groups involved in Climate Action Tracker.
