Barry, My Liege :
'The world must cut CO2 emissions to zero by 2070 at the latest to keep global warming below dangerous levels and prevent a global catastrophe, the UN warns.
By 2100, all greenhouse gas emissions – including methane, nitrous oxide and ozone, as well as CO2 – must fall to zero, the United Nation's Environment Programme (Unep) report says, or the world will face what Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change scientists have described as “severe, widespread and irreversible” effects from climate change.'
Considering that the world's economies are carbon based, it is unlikely that such a target is achievable.
This likelihood moves the Humanity Doomsday Clock to 2145.
