Total emissions from industry and energy last year came to a record 37 billion tonnes. "Population confinement has led to drastic changes in energy use and CO2 emissions," said lead author Corinne Le Quere, a professor at the Tyndall Centre for Climate … [Read more...] about Global CO2 emissions to drop 4-7% in 2020, but will it matter?
