Global Carbon Budget 2014

This presentation provides information about the trends and projections of global carbon dioxide emissions. In addition to describing overall CO2 patterns, the report breaks down changes in emissions by energy sources (and sinks), geographic region, and timescale. It concludes that the world must limit its emissions to 3,200 Gt in order to have a 66 percent chance of keeping global warming below 2 degrees C. We have already spent more than half of this budget and, at our current emissions rate, are projected to use up the remaining budget within 30 years.
