Today’s release of the World Energy Outlook (WEO) 2018 marked another missed opportunity for the International Energy Agency (IEA) to provide a roadmap to Paris success.
In response to the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) 2018 World Energy Outlook (WEO), Greg Muttitt, Research Director at Oil Change International, said: “We need the world’s foremost energy modellers to model global success in meeting our climate goals, yet this year’s WEO again emphasizes a business-as-usual pathway to climate failure.”
How the International Energy Agency’s Sustainable Development Scenario doesn’t match up to the Paris goals, and how the IEA can change it (2 years ago it nearly did!)
In a landmark special report, the IPCC has today confirmed the urgency and importance of keeping us to 1.5ºC of warming.
The embedded carbon emissions from the oil, gas, and coal in currently operating fields and mines, if they run to the end of their projected lifetimes, will take us just beyond the Paris Agreement’s 2C warming limit, and even further from the goal of 1.5C, a new study has found.
