The report is devastating. It's clear we are going wrong way. This is no time for half measures and polite dishonesty.
Global emissions to rise around 2% in 2017, dashing hopes that emissions had peaked after a three-year plateau. I break down why

Which countries are pushing CO₂ emissions up? In 2017, the biggest increases from China & developing world, not offset by slowing declines in US/EU. Great post #COP23 #carbonbudget

The 2017 increase in CO₂ emissions due to slower than expected reductions in US & EU, unable to offset large increases emission increases in China & developing world
#COP23 even more important now we know that annual carbon emissions have started to rise again after being flat for 3 yrs. But if we are to stick to 2 deg C target emissions must start dropping by 3% every year from 2020 onwards! See why in
Apart from China, the steadily rising emissions growth of "Rest of World" is impressive.
This confirms estimates from made late last yr ("global emissions to rise 2% after 3-yr plateau") /2
CO₂ emissions in the world less China (grey, dark/light blue, yellow) has sustained growth, with China (red) describing many ups/downs due to its immense size #COP23 #carbonbrief
Just looking back at ’s coverage of the emissions estimates for the past couple of years and noticed that is wearing the same suit & tie combo in both interviews…
so much for adding optimism to #climate lectures
