A 2018 IPCC report titled Global warming of 1.5°C has estimated the amount of CO2 the world can emit to stay below 1.5°C global warming over pre-industrial levels. The world had already emitted about 2,200 Gt of CO2 from the dawn of the industrial revolution till 2017.

The world emitted 37 Gt of CO2 in 2018. If we include other greenhouse gases (GHGs) such as methane, it emitted more than 53 Gt of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) in the same year.

The world is facing an existential threat. But it is also clear that without equity, ambition is not possible. The ongoing CoP25 must not duck this question any further says Centre for Science and Environment in its new position paper "COP 25: What the world must do"

As the world strives to cut greenhouse gas emissions and limit climate change, it is crucial to track progress towards globally agreed climate goals.

Levels of heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have reached another new record high, according to the World Meteorological Organization.

An increasing number of countries, including mainland China, are considering enforcing emission regulations for in-use diesel vehicles via remote sensing, a promising technology that measures exhaust emissions from a large number of on-road vehicles without interrupting traffic.

There is increasing interest in mitigation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the dairy sector in developing countries. However, there is little prior experience with measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of GHG emissions and emission reductions.

This briefing paper, produced in collaboration with ClimateWorks Foundation, explores how different futures analysis methods can be used to better understand how rapidly changing world might present challenges and opportunities towards achieving ambitious climate change mitigation goals.

The Climate Scorecard Report covers new and noteworthy climate change events in  leading greenhouse gas emitting countries during the period July-September 2019.  During this time, many countries (Australia, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Russia, Turkey and  Spain) endured extreme weather events, mainly droughts and fires; some countries  (China, In
