BP Energy Outlook 2035 "Carbon To Double Every 75 Years" - Extinction Possible?

Carbon Emissions Continue to Grow






The Outlook also considers global CO2 emissions to 2035 based on its projections of energy markets and the most likely evolution of carbon-related policies. Its projection shows emissions rising by 1% a year to 2035, or by 25% over the period, on a trajectory significantly above the path recommended by scientists as illustrated, for example, by the IEA’s “450 Scenario.”

To abate carbon emissions further will require additional significant steps by policy makers beyond the steps already assumed, and the Outlook provides comparative information for possible options and their relative impacts on emissions. However, as no one option is likely to be sufficient on its own, multiple options will need to be pursued. This underlines the importance of policy making taking steps that lead to a meaningful global price for carbon which would provide incentives for everyone to play their role in meeting the world’s increasing energy needs in a sustainable manner.
Commenting on the Outlook, Bob Dudley concluded: “The energy industry works on strategies and investments with lifespans often measured in decades. This is why an authoritative view of the key trends and movements that will shape our markets over this long term is essential… and is precisely why this Outlook is so valuable.” Read More.

Whose Moving Rapidly Towards Next Permian Extinction?

Global CO2 emissions by sector, projected to the year 2035. Global CO2 emissions from energy use grow by 25 percent (1 percent per year) over the period. Emissions remain well above the path recommended by scientists, illustrated by the IEA's '450 Scenario'.  In 2035, CO2 emissions are 18 billion tonnes above the IEA's 450 Scenario. Graphic: BP
