EU opinion & policy debates - across languages |

Climate Action Tracker is a new and useful website gauging UNFCCC commitments by parties in absolute scientific terms rather than just relative political ones.

Set against the science, the EU27 at -20% GHG remains “inadequate”, though moving to -30% GHG by 2020 would put it in the higher end of the “medium” category.

For developed countries in aggregate, commitments so far fall in the range 8-14% by 2020, set against the IPCC advice of 25-40% needed over the same period.
