Chart of Fossil Fuel Production Gap

Fossil Fuel Production Gap
Countries are planning to produce about 50% more fossil fuels by 2030 than would be consistent with a 2°C global average temperature rise, and 120% more than would be consistent with a 1.5°C rise.
The production gap is largest for coal. By 2030, countries plan to produce 150% more coal than would be consistent with a 2°C global average temperature rise, and 280% more than would be consistent with a 1.5°C rise.
