Rising CO2 emissions a 'big worry', says leading scientist

Tackling climate change could save millions of lives, report says

According to the Washington Post, China, India, and the United States all contributed to the rise in carbon emissions.

"The peak in global emissions is not yet in sight", it said.

Frank Bainimarama, prime minister of Fiji and president of last year's Cop climate talks, said nations must act now to stave off disaster.

Tackling climate change could save millions of lives, report says

An article published on Thursday in Environmental Research Letters said carbon dioxide emissions from human activities were expected to grow 2.7 per cent in 2018, following growth of 1.6 per cent in 2017.

The report says that growth in global Carbon dioxide emissions could put the Paris Agreement goal of keeping the global rise in temperatures to within 2 degree Celsius of pre-industrial times "in jeopardy".

Even solid progress in Katowice on the Paris goals may not be enough to prevent runaway global warming, as a series of major climate reports have outlined. Emissions in the USA account for almost 15% of the global total and look set to have grown by about 2.5% in 2018 as compared to previous year.

Frustrated Migrants Breach Border at Tijuana
Last week city authorities bussed them to a concert venue that now acts as a federally run shelter, 14 miles to the south. McAleenan has been overseeing the US southern border where more than 7,000 migrants have gathered near Tijuana, Mexico .

The increase in emissions was calculated by the Global Carbon Project, a team of researchers from 50 universities and institutes who study energy statistics and economic forecasts. "If we don't take action, the collapse of our civilisations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon".

Citing a recent scientific report on the dire consequences of letting average global temperatures rise beyond 1.5 degrees, Guterres urged countries to cut their emissions by 45 per cent from 2010 levels by 2030 and aim for net zero emissions by 2050.

Guterres said climate change was already taking its toll. Most of that growth can be traced to an exceptionally hot summer and cold winter. "We need to move beyond domestic political challenges so that we can collectively tackle the existential crisis", said Harjeet Singh, global lead on climate change at ActionAid International.

Ohio State's Urban Meyer to retire
Being a 2020 propect, Ohio State has roughly 13 months to re-convince Cavazos that Ohio State is where he wants to be. The cyst has caused consistent headaches for Meyer , increasing concern for his health, says the reports.

The two-week conference, in Poland's southern coal mining region of Silesia, is expected to work out how governments can report on their efforts to reduce green gas emission and keep global warming within the Paris accord limit.

He argued during a panel discussion that "this is evidenced by the results we have achieved in reducing emissions, in particular through increasing the forest cover and by supporting worldwide climate negotiations".

The European Union is set to see a small decline in 2018, and will account for about a tenth of the total.
