Industry and agriculture continue to pollute the air: Climate treaty ends

According to a study by the renowned Reuters Foundation, many developments in the global economy are going in the wrong direction, and the Climate Agreements of the Paris Agreement (2015) will not be met.

This is shown by new research figures from the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the ClimateWorks Foundation.

For example, little progress has been made in recent years in reducing emissions from agricultural production, which grew 3 percent between 2012 and 2017, the report said. Emissions from agriculture are expected to increase by nearly a third over the next thirty years.

But according to the report, according to Paris-2015, those percentages would have to fall sharply to keep the global temperature increase below 1.5 ° C.

Efforts to halt deforestation, particularly in tropical areas, also fail, said report co-author Katie Lebling. "Deforestation is on the rise - and it should decline," Lebling, an employee at WRI's climate program, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

The report examined global progress in Climate Policy across six industries: energy, buildings, industry, transportation, forests and agriculture.

Air pollution from cement and steel production, for example, turns out to account for nearly half of all industrial emissions worldwide. To meet climate goals, global cement emissions would have to fall by 85 to 91 percent and steel emissions by 93 to 100 percent by 2050, according to estimates in the report.
