Global nations are falling far behind its target goal of reducing carbon emissions 43% by 2030, the United Nations said Tuesday.
Instead, climate change plans proposed by the world’s nations would only put the planet on pace to reduce carbon emissions by 2% by the end of the decade.
If the world fails to reduce its emissions by the target goal before 2030, the globe could surge past its 1.5 Celsius global heating limit.
“Every fraction of a degree matters, but we are severely off track. COP28 is our time to change that,” said Simon Stiell, the UN Climate Change chief.
