UN Warns World's Worst Polluters Falling Short of Net-Zero Goals

UN Warns World's , Worst Polluters Falling Short , of Net-Zero Goals.

The United Nations has warned that the Earth is on track to hit a "hellish" three degrees Celsius of global temperature increase.

.

'The Guardian' reports that the warning was issued ahead of the organization's critical COP28 climate summit next week in the United Arab Emirates.

.

2023 has already shattered temperature records.

.

Increased temperatures have intensified heatwaves, floods and droughts, resulting in the loss of lives and livelihoods around the world.

According to the UN's report, in order to reach the internationally agreed target of 1.5 degrees Celsius, 22 billion tons of carbon must be cut from 2030 projections.

'The Guardian' reports that the amount needed to be cut is 42% of total global emissions and equivalent to the output of the world's top five polluters.

.

There is no person or economy left on the planet untouched by climate change, so we need to stop setting unwanted records on emissions, temperature and extreme weather, Inger Andersen, The UN Environment Program executive director, via 'The Guardian'.

We must instead lift the needle out of the same old groove of insufficient action, and start setting other records: on cutting emissions and on climate finance, Inger Andersen, The UN Environment Program executive director, via 'The Guardian'.

The report cautioned that none of the G20 members who produce 90% of carbon emissions have taken actions consistent with their stated net-zero goals.
