India on target to double carbon emissions by 2030

For scientific papers on AGW, record happenings in the Arctic and the Greenland, Himalayan and Antarctic icesheets. Also weatherstorms and higher than average rainfalls and other extreme weather events.

India on target to double carbon emissions by 2030

Industrialization, social development, and population growth are the main cause.

Australia still has 12 times the per capita emissions of India. Australia is the second highest per capita emitter behind Saudi Arabia.

Indian emissions have grown rapidly in the last decades (purple line), and will continue to grow strongly under India’s emission pledge (purple circles). To meet the two degree target, India may need to reach “peak emissions” within the next decade with rapid reductions to follow (two scenarios shown by black lines). The faster other countries reduce emissions, like the US and EU, the more flexibility India has to balance development and environmental objectives. Since India has low per-capita emissions, India would have to reduce its emissions faster if the remaining global emissions are implicitly shared based on current emissions (labelled 'inertia' in the graph) or population (labelled 'population' in the graph).

Ta, will have a read. The targets agreed do allow India and China to increase emissions to improve their vast rural population’s standard of living.
