  • BBC News published this video item, entitled “UN climate change goal now ‘within reach’ – BBC News” – below is their description.

    The goals of the UN Paris climate agreement are getting “within reach”, new analysis suggests.

    The Climate Action Tracker group looked at new climate promises from China and other nations, along with the carbon plans of US President-elect Joe Biden.

    These commitments would mean the rise in world temperatures could be held to 2.1C by the end of this century.

    Previous estimates indicated up to 3C of heating, with disastrous impacts.

    But the experts are worried the long-term optimism is not matched by short-term plans to cut CO2.
