"The world has only six months in which to change the course of the
climate crisis and prevent a post-lockdown rebound in greenhouse gas
emissions that would overwhelm efforts to stave off climate catastrophe,
one of the world’s foremost energy experts has warned.
“This year is the last time we have, if we are not to see a carbon
rebound,” said Fatih Birol, executive director of the International
Governments are planning to spend $9tn (£7.2tn) globally in the next few
months on rescuing their economies from the coronavirus crisis, the IEA
has calculated. The stimulus packages created this year will determine
the shape of the global economy for the next three years, according to
Birol, and within that time emissions must start to fall sharply and
permanently, or climate targets will be out of reach."
