Iran Greenhouse Gas Emissions Up 3% in Decade

Coal-fired power plant in Beijing China

Brussels and Beijing, the world's other big polluters, are publicly committed to tackling global warming. If it were its own country, the coalition would, therefore, be the world's third-largest economy.

The strain created by this dynamic has emerged behind closed doors at the COP23 climate summit here. This marked the first time that global emissions were decoupled from economic output-a development driven by reduced coal use in the United States and China, as well as energy efficiency improvements and growth in renewable energy around the world. Developing countries are taking their actions.

India, however, underlined that it has taken "ambitious targets" in its climate actions pledge under the Paris Agreement and the country is "on path for achieving those". The political negotiations involving ministers run through Friday.

All in all, he said, China is on the right track. The America's Pledge report released in Bonn estimated that the "We Are Still In" coalition represents more than half the USA economy.

After remaining steady for three years, global fossil fuel emissions are rising again and may increase again next year.

"While the White House declares war on climate science and retreats from the Paris Agreement, California is doing the opposite and taking action", said California Governor Jerry Brown. "But bifurcation is coming back", said a European diplomat in Bonn, asking not to be named.

A climate change roadmap unveiled by the Iranian government in 2016 states the need for significant policy reform in the energy sector, which is responsible for over 90% of Iran's greenhouse gas emissions.

The research came out as representatives of almost 200 countries meet in Bonn, Germany, to hash out rules for complying with Paris.

The EU and USA have long argued for a single, robust system to make sure everyone is measuring and reporting their emissions and aid in the same way. After that point, scientists warn that sea level rise, violent storms, and intense droughts and heatwaves associated with climate change will make adaptation extremely hard and costly in most densely populated regions.

Vardhan called upon both the developed and developing countries to fulfil their commitment for pre-2020 period.

Global CO2 emissions from all human activities are set to reach 41 billion tonnes (41 Gt CO2) by the end of 2017.

Lax transparency and accounting rules, however, could further weaken a landmark climate accord.

The talks aimed to take a number of decisions necessary to bring the Paris Agreement to life including meaningful progress on the agreement to implement guidelines to keep global warming within 1.5 degrees Celsius with an aim to cut greenhouse gases from burning fossil fuels. Plus, he said past estimates have been correct within a couple tenths of a percentage point. The post 2020 actions under the Paris Agreement are meant for all countries in keeping with their voluntarily stated goals in the global deal. In response, delegates from the EU, Canada and U.S. governments said repeatedly that they could not possibly meet the expectations of developing countries on paying for GHG emission mitigation or for adaptation, "because there simply isn't enough public finance available".

Any compromise could follow the example set in worldwide agreements to reduce emissions from aviation and refrigerants and coolants, Arias Cañete said. The more important is time.

One of the tasks before the negotiators here in Bonn was to finalise the "design", or the agenda, for this meeting which will be held alongside the annual climate conference, scheduled in Poland next year.

"The return to growth in global emissions in 2017 is largely due to growth in Chinese emissions, projected to grow by 3.5% in 2017 after two years with declining emissions", explained Dr Glen Peters of the CICERO Center for International Climate Research in Oslo who led one of the studies.
