Attempts to keep global warming to 2 degrees will be wildly off course if all planned coal fire plants are built.
That’s the conclusion of a new analysis presented here at the UN climate conference near Paris.
Researchers said construction would see emissions four times higher than the 2 degree target by 2030.
They say the building plans are in conflict with the carbon cutting agendas of countries like India and China.
The Climate Action Tracker analysis says that 2,440 coal fired power stations are planned around the world before 2030.
Emissions from the world’s existing plants will be 150% higher than what is consistent with a 2 degree target, says their report.
