In partnership with Carbon Tracker and the CCLA, University College London (UCL) presents their new research published in January in Nature.
The study that finds global fossil fuel reserves are 3 times higher than the amount that can be safely burned by 2050 to keep global warming below 2˚C.
Over the past two years, momentum has been building behind the concepts of unburnable carbon and stranded assets. This latest research adds weight not only to the notion that current global fossil fuel reserves exceed the 2°C carbon budget, but that globally there are vast amounts of less developed coal, oil and gas resources in addition to these reserves.
