The 2020s are the Climate Change Decade: Toward a new politics of decarbonisation
January 13, 2020
Politics is the process through which society arrives at and implements collective decisions. The decision to decarbonise the UK by 2050 is a collective decision of potentially monumental importance – one that will conceivably impact every single person’s life.

The School of International Development is seeking to recruit a Professor to maintain and develop its world-class research on sustainable development and lead on innovative and interdisciplinary research collaborations across the Norwich Research Park (NRP).
The School of Environmental Sciences (ENV) at UEA is seeking to recruit a Chair in Climate Change Science to complement existing expertise on the detection and understanding of observed trends in the Earth System and how these will evolve in the coming decades and beyond under a changing climate.
Global carbon emissions are set to grow more slowly in 2019, with a decline in coal burning offset by strong growth in natural gas and oil use worldwide – according to researchers at the University of East Anglia (UEA), University of Exeter and the Global Carbon Project.
A slow growth in fossil CO2 emissions is projected for 2019, at +0.6% (range: –0.2 to +1.5%)1. The 2019 growth is slower than over the past two years, with +1.5% in 2017 and +2.1% in 2018. A decline in global emissions in 2019 cannot be ruled out given uncertainties in the projection.
Carbon emissions slow their growth but still at global high

Emissions from burning fossil fuels are projected to grow by 0.6 per cent (range: –0.2 to +1.5 per cent) this year to reach almost 37 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2). This is down from 1.5 per cent in 2017 and 2.1 per cent in 2018.
