Contrary to the Paris Agreement, coal, gas production will increase, know how coordination will deteriorate

On the one hand, under the Paris climate agreement, efforts are being made to limit temperature rise to one and a half degrees by the end of the century. On the other hand, there are signs of an increase in the production of coal, oil and gas, which may sabotage these efforts. This has been revealed in the annual production gap report of the United Nations. The report said that there are signs of fossil fuel production exceeding acceptable levels in the coming years.

According to the report, governments of many countries are engaged in increasing production instead of matching climate hazards and production of fossil fuels. The report predicts that by 2030, coal production will be 240 per cent higher, oil 57 per cent and gas 71 per cent higher than the acceptable level of 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Global gas production is projected to grow the most between 2020 and 2040, based on the current plans of various governments. The continued, long-term global expansion in gas production is inconsistent with the Paris Agreement's temperature limits.

The report said that the world has invested more than a billion dollars on fossil fuels in packages to recover from Corona. There was a need to invest in clean energy. Responding to this report, UNEP Executive Director Inger Andersen said that the devastating effects of climate change are in front of everyone. There is still time to limit long-term temperature rise to 1.5 °C, but this window of opportunity is rapidly closing. COP-26 and beyond should the governments of the world take swift and immediate steps to bridge the fossil fuel production gap, ensure an equitable and equitable transition.

He said that at present, the way the world is working to deal with climate threats, He is 110 per cent more on the way to achieving the 1.5 degree target. This is 45 percent more than the target of two degrees. This suggests that governments are not swiftly shifting their fossil fuel production plans, despite a growing number of net zero and emissions reduction pledges.
