Emission drop equivalent to Covid lockdowns needed every 2 years to reduce heating: study

Mar 04, 2021 15:19 IST | By Editorji News Desk

In order to reduce global warming over the next decade, carbon emission drops equivalent to those during the Covid-19 lockdowns would be needed every 2 years, according to a new study.

The study, published in the journal Nature Climate Change, states that thanks to the global lockdowns, carbon emissions fell by 7% in 2020. 

To meet the goals of the Paris Climate Accord, reduction in emissions, between 1bn and 2bn tonnes are needed every year over the next decade.

Unless countries take rapid actions to cut down emissions, the levels achieved during the lockdown could rebound, the study said.
