Title Europe can afford only 9 more years of fossil fuels for energy, climate science shows Media name/outlet Friends of the Earth Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 7/11/17 Description Europe needs to urgently quit gas if it is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to internationally agreed levels, new science shows.
A new study, commissioned by Friends of the Earth Europe from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and the Teesside University, shows that EU countries can afford just nine more years of burning gas and other fossil fuels at the current rate before they will have exhausted their share of the earth's remaining carbon budget for maximum temperature rises of 2°C.
