1071222 Chairman Chien Discusses - CO2 Emissions

 

According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) The State of the Global Climate in 2018, the global average temperature in the first ten months of 2018 is nearly 1% higher than the pre-industrial baseline (1850-1900). When analyzing the impact of reducing the 2.0-degree carbon reduction target originally agreed by the Paris Agreement to 1.5 degrees, there was difficulty deciding how to do that. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Emissions Gap Report 2018 states that since 2014-2017, the global carbon emissions have risen again in 2017, with a total carbon emissions of 49.2 billion tons. Including land use, it has increased by 1.1% compared with 2016. In addition to the temperature reduction target, the United Nations also announced that the global carbon emissions need to be reduced by 40% in 2030. In addition to the need to rely on innovative technology, it is also necessary to bring together national consensus, promote citizenship and political will to achieve this difficult goal.
