Commenting on the deal, Sunita Narain, director general, CSE, points out: "It is a self-serving deal in which both countries have agreed to converge their per capita emissions at 12 tonne in 2030. This is a high level of emission and not in line with meeting the 2 degrees C temperature target mandated by the IPCC."
The recently released Synthesis Report of the IPCC mentions that the world needs to cut its emissions between 40 and 70 percent below 2010 levels by 2050 to stay within the 2 degrees C temperature increase pathway. The US-China deal will not allow the world to meet this benchmark, adds Narain.
...
This is the only way we can force the US and China to reduce their emissions which are in line with the planetary limits," adds Narain.
