The recent Nature publication has analyzed the chances of limiting global temperature increase to 1.5°C, describing them as "exceptionally low." The current carbon budget is now estimated to be less than half of the 2020 IPCC report's projections, potentially running out in six years if emission rates persist. We are left with approximately 250 billion tons of carbon to emit for a 50% chance of staying below a 1.5°C increase, with global emissions expected to hit 40 billion tons this year. Achieving net-zero emissions by 2034 is essential to maintain these odds, presenting a formidable challenge. The study also considers the 2°C limit of the Paris Agreement, highlighting significant impending climate impacts and emphasizing the need for immediate fossil fuel phase-out. The upcoming COP28 climate summit is expected to focus on this urgent call for action, with a push to revisit strategies for returning to the 1.5°C target in case of overshoot.

    If we can have carbon offsetting programs in plenty maybe we can make a dent in the carbon emissions
