The School of Environmental Sciences (ENV) at UEA is seeking to recruit a Chair in Climate Change Science to complement existing expertise on the detection and understanding of observed trends in the Earth System and how these will evolve in the coming decades and beyond under a changing climate.
Global carbon emissions are set to grow more slowly in 2019, with a decline in coal burning offset by strong growth in natural gas and oil use worldwide – according to researchers at the University of East Anglia (UEA), University of Exeter and the Global Carbon Project.
A slow growth in fossil CO2 emissions is projected for 2019, at +0.6% (range: –0.2 to +1.5%)1. The 2019 growth is slower than over the past two years, with +1.5% in 2017 and +2.1% in 2018. A decline in global emissions in 2019 cannot be ruled out given uncertainties in the projection.
