Global emissions to rise around 2% in 2017, dashing hopes that emissions had peaked after a three-year plateau. I break down why
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.
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
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
so much for adding optimism to #climate lectures

The report is devastating. It's clear we are going wrong way. This is no time for half measures and polite dishonesty.
