The OECD-backed International Energy Agency calculated in 2012 that just one-third of the world's proved reserves of fossil fuels could be burnt if the world was to have a 50 per cent chance of limiting the rise in global temperatures, since the pre-industrial era
, to 2 degrees centigrade, an internationally agreed objective.
Just days later, the agency shared more bad news for the planet,- warning that 2015 is likely to be the warmest year on record, breaching the symbolic and significant milestone of 1 degree Celsius above the pre-industrial era
CENEVRE (CyHAN)- According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the global average surface temperature in 2015 is likely to be the warmest on record and to reach the symbolic and significant milestone of 1 Degree Celsius above the pre-industrial era

The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said global average surface temperatures in 2015 were likely to reach what it called the "symbolic and significant milestone" of 1A Celsius above the pre-industrial era
The hope is that global community will achieve an agreement which would assure future global warming does not exceed 2C compared to pre-industrial era
The 90 entities together have emitted 939 gigatons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere since the pre-industrial era
began in 1751, according to the report, which was released on the sidelines of United Nations climate talks in Lima, where delegates are working toward a global climate accord that is to be finalized in Paris in December 2015.
His work explores the open moorland and mountain terrain in the South Pennines, focusing on the pre-industrial era
Therefore, a 50 percent reduction in forest aerosols has actually spurred greater warming since the pre-industrial era
Carbon dioxide levels are 40% higher than in the pre-industrial era
mainly due to the burning of fossil fuels and land changes, including deforestation.
Levels of carbon dioxide are 40 per cent higher than in the pre-industrial era
In the north-central and northeastern United States, extreme weather is more than four times as likely to occur than it was in the pre-industrial era
, according to a new study by Noah Diffenbaugh, a Stanford associate professor of environmental Earth system science, and Martin Scherer, a research assistant in the department.
