Large uncertainty in warming outcomes of current policies and emission pledges

During the recent Glasgow Climate Conference (COP26) there was a lot of focus on the climate outcomes of new climate policy pledges. A new analysis shows that these outcomes are more uncertain then often assumed.

Global CO2 emissions return to near pre-COVID pandemic levels

Global fossil CO2 emissions are expected to grow 4.9% in 2021, nearly offsetting the 5.4% decline in 2020 due the COVID restrictions. Coal and gas use rebounded strongly to exceed 2019 levels, while oil use remains suppressed, suggesting strong policy action is needed to avoid continued emissions growth in 2022.

New study shows lack of government support for renewable energy communities

Although EU law gives all citizens in Europe the right to participate in a renewable energy community, there is a lack of national support schemes for the development of such communities, a new study shows.

CICERO is studying greenhouse gas emissions from the food and land-use systems

As part of the project NorthWesternPaths, CICERO researchers are studying how changes in diet, food waste, agriculture and forestry could help reduce Norway’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Climate policies must intensify to accelerate emission reductions in the post-COVID era

Global CO2 emissions declined sharply in 2020, but with a rebound expected in 2021 efforts must be intensified if the world is to reach the targets of the Paris Climate Agreement and keep global warming well below 2°C, a new study shows.
