2391. No major economy on track for Paris quotas - CNN
None of the world’s major economies, including those in the G20 group, have a sufficient plan to meet their obligations under the Paris Agreement on climate change. The policy-analyst group Climate Action Tracker looked at the policies of 36 countries, plus the European Union, that are responsible for 80% of the world’s greenhouse-gas emissions. Only the Gambia’s climate action is compatible with the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5 ℃. Seven countries’ policies were almost good enough, including the United Kingdom. Russia and Singapore are among the nations whose policies were judged to be badly insufficient.
