Durban may be last chance to stabilise climate under two degrees

The window to limit global warming to less than two degrees C is closing so fast it can be measured in months, a new scientific analysis revealed last week.

Without putting the brakes on carbon emissions very soon, large parts of Africa, most of Russia and northern China will be two degrees C warmer in less than 10 years. Canada and Alaska will soon follow, the regional study shows.

"If one is sincerely committed to limit global temperature increase to below two degrees C... (governments) committing to a global peak emission level and peak year makes sense from a science perspective," said Joeri Rogelj of the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science in Zurich, who headed the analysis published last week in the journal Nature Climate Change.
