Green race is on: low carbon economy index 2010

By the year 2050, the world will need to reduce its carbon intensity by around 88% if it hopes to limit climate change to 2°C of warming.  So concludes PwC’s Low Carbon Economy Index 2010, a report assessing the G20 countries’ achievements in reducing their carbon intensity levels—defined as the ratio of emissions to GDP—since 2000, and analysing the distance each nation must still go to meet G20 carbon reduction targets by 2050. The report is an update to a previous analysis in 2009 before the UN Copenhagen climate summit.
