Report: Global CO2 Emissions to Jump in 2018
Emissions of the greenhouse gas are expected to climb between 1.8 and 3.7 percent this year, according to a report by the Global Carbon Project released yesterday. The study blames much of the rise on coal use in China and India. Worldwide carbon generation had remained steady from 2014 to 2016 but increased last year. The news comes as delegates from nearly 200 nations meet in Poland to discuss implementing the Paris Agreement in hopes of cutting CO2 emissions 20 percent by 2030.
