The WCRP and Future Earth sponsored Global Carbon Project has published its Carbon Budget 2018 where it estimates that CO2 emissions will rise by a projected 2.7 percent this year, with an uncertainty range between 1.8 percent and 3.7 percent. In 2017, carbon emissions grew by 1.6 percent after a three-year hiatus. The budget was published today in Earth System Science Data and has clear implications for discussions at the Katowice Climate Change Conference.
