To combat global warming, most countries of the G20 will ” not soon enough “, or even in the wrong direction, according to a report from the consortium for international Climate Transparency, published on Wednesday. The major powers of the world are far from put everything in place to achieve their objectives in terms of CO2 emissions, ” he says. The report, intended to highlight the transition of the countries of the G20 to a economy, ” brown “, based on fossil fuels to a “green” economy tour to renewable energies, leading in particular of the finger, the increase of subsidies to polluting energy sources. Thus, the subsidies to fossil fuels have on the whole increased over time : from $ 75 billion in 2007 to $ 147 billion in 2016, while in 2009 at Pittsburgh, G20 leaders called for ” the removal and rationalisation of subsidies to fossil fuels. “
the authors of The report believe that the political pressures within the countries of the G20, in particular in relation to the oil, coal and gas, are too often contrary to the acts effective in the climate. “There is a fight important to the oil industry in the face of renewable energy,” says Jan Buerck, co-author of the report, in the colons duGuardian. The environmental policies put in place by Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, South Korea, Turkey and the United States will not allow them to achieve their own national contribution announced (NCC), while China, India or the european Union could achieve their goals, primarily, as the report explains, because of their low ambitions.

In a press release dated last July, the French ministry of the ecological Transition and several mentioned the “enlargement of the scope of national contributions” in French. Currently, the report indicates that the overall national contributions would lead to a temperature increase of 3.2 ° c by 2030, and that, for the time being, none of the countries of the G20 complies with the objectives of the Paris Agreements. Emissions of CO2 have increased by 2017 in 15 of the 20 G20 countries, which still depend on the height of 82 % of the fossil fuels.
