The pandemic, along with other recent trends such as the shift towards clean energy, have placed us at a crossroad: the choices we make today can change the course of global emissions.
Agriculture is the dominant cause for the increasing N₂O concentrations. Emissions must be reduced if we hope to stabilise Earth's climate.
New research reveals which sectors of the global economy fuelled the emissions decline during COVID-19. We have a narrow window of time to make the change permanent.
Una nueva investigación analiza los sectores económicos responsables de la caída global de emisiones debida a la COVID-19. Tenemos una pequeño margen de tiempo para hacer el cambio permanente.

De tout récents travaux du Global Carbon Project montrent dans le détail les effets de la pandémie et du confinement sur l’économie mondiale.
Dengan makin banyak orang-orang bekerja dari rumah, perjalanan udara yang semakin jarang, serta adanya stimulus ekonomi yang sesuai, kita bisa menekan pertumbuhan emisi untuk jangka panjang.
A move towards working from home, less air travel and prudent stimulus spending could flatten emissions growth in the longer term.
Coal emissions are falling, but gas and coal use are strongly rising around the world.
Carbon emissions will hit a record high for the second year in a row, but there is a small silver lining: the rate of emissions growth has slowed dramatically.

Reducing emissions doesn't have to conflict with a growing economy, as these 18 developed nations show.

For the second year in a row global greenhouse emissions from fossil fuels have risen, putting 2018 on course to set a new record, according to an annual audit from the Global Carbon Project.

We are on track to reach 1.5°C of global warming within 16 years according to new data.
Universities should be working to make spaces more accessible for students and staff with disabilities.
South Africa has a new policy framework for students with disabilities but will it bring real change?
The growth in global carbon emissions has resumed after a three-year pause.

After three years in which global carbon emissions scarcely rose, 2017 has seen them climb by 2%, as the long-anticipated peak in global emissions remains elusive.
The rise of renewable energy is one reason the world is shifting away from coal.

Global emissions from fossil fuels have stalled. That puts us in the right place to keep warming below 2℃, but there's plenty of work still to be done.
China’s concerns about air pollution from burning coal is one reason behind the emissions slowdown.

For three years, carbon emissions from fossil fuels have grown little or not at all, opening a window of opportunity to halt climate change.
We pay for the product, but not the carbon cost.
Is it fair that China is blamed for the carbon dioxide emissions it generates to manufacture products destined for the West? Would the West do more to reduce greenhouse gases if it had to pay for the emissions…
