|Climate Progress News Barrel - real world examples of progress on climate action|
|ABOUT THE CLIMATE PROGRESS NEWS BARREL|
This open-access barrel of global news stories and research on climate commitments, the changes taking hold in the real economy and the quickening climate crisis. It offers a snapshot, updated frequently, of the biggest and most insightful developments around the world. It does not include every story of progress.
The spreadsheet is designed as a reference for journalists, communicators, policy experts and others to search for examples, trends and stories that can bring their work to life. If, for instance, you're writing a story or a speech about the finance sector's shift away from fossil fuels, you can scroll through the Finance Progress Examples tab for the latest news stories. If you're looking for commitments by businesses, investors and cities in the US, you can search for any recent news stories in the US/ North America across all tabs. Or, you can simply visit the spreadsheet every now and then to check for new research briefings or changes in a particular sector.
New science traces the fingerprints human activity across the changing climate, from extreme temperatures to wildfires or floods. It also shows that the world has a shrinking window of time in which to get on track to limit warming to 1.5C and avert the worst impacts of climate change. The UN's COP26 summit in Glasgow in November 2021 offers a last opportunity to bring governments together behind a clear path to halve greenhouse gas emissions within the 2020s and reach net zero before 2050. But what governments do - and what they pledge in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the Paris Agreement only tells part of the story.
Change is already happening across the global economy, driven by businesses, investors, cities and regions - often moving much faster than their national governments.
