UN predicts a drastic three-degree Celsius temperature rise by 2100

# The United Nations’ annual Emissions Gap Report contains a stark warning that the world is on course for a three-degree-Celsius global heating by the end of this century. The assessment precedes the Cop28 climate summit taking place in Dubai next week. The report underscores that current carbon-cutting policies are insufficient, potentially resulting in further global warming beyond pre-industrial levels unless governments intensify climate action. UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres emphasises the looming risk of reaching critical points of no return such as the melting of ice sheets.
