To give an indication of the carbon budget implications of the INDC scenarios, Figure 3.2 (on the right) shows the cumulative CO2 emissions implied by the INDC scenarios until 2030. Figure 3.2 shows that under the INDC scenarios, the IPCC CO2 budget for limiting warming to below 2°C with at least 66 per cent probability will be close to depleted by 2030,...
