Carbon dioxide release may accelerate again

Carbon dioxide release may accelerate again

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reported that the latest research by climate experts shows that according to the current carbon dioxide emission reduction indicators, even if countries complete the contract, it is still difficult to reverse the increase in the risk of “greenhouse earth”.

The Paris Agreement of 2015 does not seem to meet the global demand for carbon dioxide emission reduction. Expert research shows that the change from continuous heating is slow to fast, and the rate of carbon dioxide release is likely to exceed the estimated value. Compared with the pre-industrial period, the global temperature rises by 1 °C. If you enter the “greenhouse earth” stage, the difference may exceed 5 °C.

It must be acknowledged that global temperatures are generally rising and human activities are the primary responsibility. Especially now, in the summer, many high-temperature warnings appear frequently, and ordinary people can easily perceive some shallow images brought about by global warming. It shows that the demand for carbon emission reduction is urgent.

According to reports, the EU has already prepared to “step on the gas pedal” and go further on the carbon emission reduction plan. According to EU Energy Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete, by 2030, the emission reduction target will increase by 5%, and half of the entire EU will be replaced by renewable energy.

Some foreign media even revealed that some countries require the emission reduction target to increase to 55%. Although it looks very challenging, the continuous innovation of technological innovation brings about the diversified development of clean energy such as wind, hydro, solar, geothermal, bioenergy, nuclear, hydrogen, shale, and combustible ice. It does add more confidence to the realization of higher goals.

At least, there is more room for discussion in China, which has exceeded its carbon reduction targets. As early as the 2018 annual meeting of China’s development high-level forum, Li Gao, director of the National Development and Reform Commission’s Climate Change Department, announced good news that “China’s carbon intensity fell by about 46% in 2017 compared with 2005”.
