The Global Carbon Project, an organization led by Stanford Earth's Rob Jackson, estimates that global CO2 emissions from fossil fuel sources will hit a record high of more than 37 billion tons this year.
The record high of carbon emissions in 2018 was driven by a solid growth in coal use for the second year in a row, along with sustained growth in oil and gas use, according to new research co-authored by Stanford Earth's Rob Jackson.
Driven by growing energy use, the world’s carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels continue to increase, placing the goals of the Paris climate agreement in jeopardy, according to a new Stanford-led analysis.
As nations assemble in Poland for climate talks, projections from Rob Jackson and the Global Carbon Project suggest there is no clear end in sight to the growth of humanity’s contribution to climate change.
A new Stanford study says hot and dry conditions will increasingly hit multiple regions at the same time – shrinking crop yields, destabilizing food prices and laying the groundwork for large wildfires.
