This year's Carbon Budget published

The annual update on the global carbon budget, which is led by the Global Carbon Project (https://www.globalcarbonproject.org) is published (https://doi.org/10.5194/essd-14-4811-2022), and was presented also at the UNFCCC COP at Sharm el-Sheikh. The analysis shows that -despite political commitments to limit global warming- emissions continue to increase and are projected for 2022 to be 40.6 Gt CO2, about similar to pre-Corona levels of 2019. Our team has again this year contributed with LPJ-GUESS simulations to these regular updates.
