“Climate shuffle” likely to lead to increased warming

12th June 2013


Bonn—12 June 2013-- Against a background of stalled climate talks, current analyses of climate policies show that governments are less likely than ever to deliver on the Copenhagen pledges, let alone keep global warming below 2degC, the Climate Action Tracker said today in its latest update, released at the Bonn climate talks.

Current emissions trends – together with implemented and planned policies - are likely to lead to higher 21st century emission levels than previously projected, suggesting increased warming by 2100.
