Lower limit for future climate emissions

The world can emit even less greenhouse gases than previously estimated in order to limit climate change to less than 2°C, a new study shows. The study finds that the available budget is on the low end of the spectrum compared to previous estimates--which ranged from 590 to 2390 billion tons of carbon dioxide for the same time period--lending further urgency to the need to address climate change.
