Scientists: 90 percent should remain underground for climate targets…

A scientific study published in the journal Nature revealed that fossil fuels must remain largely underground in order to achieve goals related to global warming and climate change.

According to the research, 60 percent of oil and gas reserves and 90 percent of coal reserves should not be extracted from underground in order to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees.

The calculation was made by examining global energy supply and demand. The focus was on values ​​such as the amount of energy needed and where carbon emissions should be limited.

REDUCE 3 PERCENT EVERY YEAR UP TO 2050

According to the study, fossil fuel production should peak in 2020 and be reduced by 3% each year until 2050. University College London (UCL) Faculty Member Dr. “During the Covid epidemic, we observed a significant drop in fossil fuel production, but it is reverting back to normal,” said Steve Pye.

UCL’s Dr. James Price described the study as follows:

“We asked the model we have: How can all of the energy needed from today to 2100 be met without emitting a lot of carbon dioxide? The conclusion we got was that a rapid reduction in fossil fuels is needed and that fuel should not be extracted to a large extent.”

The research also calculates how much oil and gas production around the world would have to drop in order to stick to carbon emissions targets.

Accordingly, many countries should see the peak in production now or in the next 10 years and start to decline.

On the other hand, many fossil fuel extraction projects are already planned, which could make it impossible to meet the carbon emissions targets that scientists agree on, BBC Turkish reported.

scientists, also notes that even this calculation they made may be missing the magnitude of the danger. Accordingly, models of carbon targets only give the world a 50 percent chance to keep global warming at 1.5 degrees.

Researchers suggest clearer national policies on fossil fuel production. They say they hope that the resulting clear figures will lead politicians to act against fossil fuels.

Dr. “Physics doesn’t care about political will. Technically we know how to do this. It’s all about really stepping up,” Price says.

EXPECTATIONS FOR COP26

The 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), which will take place in Glasgow in November this year, will discuss what steps all countries are taking in line with their climate goals.https://805ae546e6b2955e6dd53fe60dc84000.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.htmlhttps://805ae546e6b2955e6dd53fe60dc84000.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-38/html/container.html

The Paris Climate Agreement in 2015 set forth the clearest climate targets reached within the United Nations (UN). Accordingly, in order to partially stop the devastating effects of climate change, the global temperature rise must be kept at 1.5 degrees.

Temperature increases are calculated based on average temperatures seen in the “pre-industrial period” between 1850 and 1900. Accordingly, the world’s average temperature in 2020 is 1.2 degrees higher than in the pre-industrial period.
