For the first time, global warming has exceeded 1.5C

across an entire year, according to the EU's climate service.

World leaders promised in 2015 to try to limit the long-term temperature rise to 1.5C, which is seen as crucial to help avoid the most damaging impacts.

"It's another step in the wrong direction. But we know what we've got to do."

'Unstoppable' shift to clean energy will see demand for fossil fuels peak before 2030, IEA says

Released today, the agency’s annual World Energy Outlook finds that the “phenomenal” rise of clean energy technologies like solar, wind, electric cars and heat pumps is on track to reshape how we power everything from homes to vehicles and factories.

The report reveals that much stronger policies are needed to keep within 1.5C of global warming. Despite a potential peak by 2030, demand for fossil fuels is still set to remain far too high to keep Paris Agreement goals alive, according to the IEA.

This not only risks worsening climate impacts after a year of record-breaking heat but also compromises the security of the energy system, which was built for a cooler world with less extreme weather.
