    Default Greenhouse Gas Emissions Must Peak Within 4 Years Says Leaked UN Report

    Fiona Harvey & Gils tremlett

    Group of scientists release draft IPCC report as they fear it will be watered down by government

    Global greenhouse gas emissions must peak in the next four years, coal and gas-fired power plants must close in the next decade and lifestyle and behavioural changes will be needed to avoid climate breakdown, according to the leaked draft of a report from the world’s leading authority on climate science.

    Rich people in every country are overwhelmingly more responsible for global heating than the poor, with SUVs and meat-eating singled out for blame, and the high-carbon basis for future economic growth is also questioned.

    Based on what I've been reading, all of these suggestions are far too late. The residence time of CO2 is 800 years... So even shutting down everything tomorrow is not going to buy us additional time.
