The complexities of climate change and its associated jargon can make it difficult to digest. TheCable’s quick climate facts will help demystify these concepts through easy-to-understand and straightforward explanations.

Here are some to keep at the tip of your fingers:

  • The United Nations says the seven biggest emitters of greenhouse gases are China, the United States of America, India, the European Union, Indonesia, the Russian Federation, and Brazil.
  • They accounted for about half of all global greenhouse gas emissions in 2020.
  • Net zero means cutting greenhouse gas emissions to as close to zero as possible.
  • To keep global warming below 1.5°C, emissions need to be reduced by 45 percent by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050.
  • Net zero can be achieved by replacing polluting coal, gas and oil-fired power with energy from renewable sources, such as wind or solar.
