GHG experience large jump

Welp, Emissions Are Up: Global greenhouse gas emissions experienced a large jump in 2018 and are on track to reach their highest levels on record by the end of the year, scientists said Wednesday.

New research from the Global Carbon Project published in three major scientific journals projects that emissions will increase 2.7 percent worldwide in 2018, after a 1.6 percent increase in 2017 and a plateau period from 2014 to 2016. As former UNFCCC leader Christiana Figueres and colleagues argue in an analysis accompanying the research in Nature, the dire findings coupled with some reasons for optimism--like the acceleration of clean technologies and "booming" subnational action--means that delegates in Katowice must "accelerate that momentum and keep everyone on board."
