The world's top three emitters contribute 14 times the emissions of the bottom 100. The CAIT Climate Data Explorer reveals this and other findings.
Agriculture and forestry offer great opportunities to help create the lower-carbon economy envisioned in the Paris Agreement, but these two sectors were largely overlooked in a new decarbonization roadmap published in the journal Science. That needs to change to reap the benefits of forest and landscape restoration.

Of its four climate goals, China has already exceeded one, is close to meeting another, and is more than halfway toward achieving the remaining two. This is encouraging progress from the world's largest emitter.
More than 800 decision-makers, innovators, entrepreneurs and citizens recently gathered to answer a vexing question: How can the world meet the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals by 2030? Four answers emerged.
The climate denier engine is revving up again. Last weekend, an article in the Mail on Sunday attempted to cast doubt on the strength of climate science, and it has been taken up by the U.S. House Science Committee, which has been prone to promoting more climate denial than sound science. The news article doesn't just misinform; it is not grounded in facts.
As one of the world's largest emitters and a growing economy, Brazil has the potential to act as a global leader for nations transitioning to low-carbon economies. Such leadership must be viewed beyond geopolitical status; it is a strategy that will reward countries with social, economic and environmental gains.
