Abstract

With COVID-19 lockdown bringing about a reduction in carbon emissions, Professor Ric Williams (University of Liverpool), considers how this affects the UK’s progress towards the Paris Climate Agreement and reaching net-zero emissions by 2050. However, as countries loosen restrictions the latest data shows a bounce back in carbon emissions, which means COVID-19 will not solve the climate crisis and that longer-term change is needed.
