Submission + - CO2 emissions reach a record high in 2010 (iea.org)

Nrrqshrr writes: "Energy-related carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions in 2010 were the highest in history, [...]. In addition, the IEA
has estimated that 80% of projected emissions from the power sector in 2020 are already locked in."

"The IEA’s 2010 World Energy Outlook set out the 450 Scenario, an energy pathway consistent with achieving this goal, based on the emissions targets countries have agreed to reach by 2020. [...] global energy-related emissions in 2020 must not be greater than 32 Gt.This means that over the next ten years, emissions must rise less in total than they did between 2009 and 2010."
