New Study: What does revised methane data mean for the Paris Agreement?
Tuesday, October 3, 2017
Revised calculations find that methane emissions from livestock in 2011 were 11% higher than modeled estimates based on data produced in 2006 by the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC).
In response, media outlets including the BBC Radio 4 Today program and Agence France-Presse (AFP) released reports suggesting that the findings could mean that it will be harder for countries to meet the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement.
