"Global emissions are increasing faster than economic growth, reversing a slow, but gradual, reduction in carbon emissions intensity seen since 2000. The findings, from new analysis in the PwC Low Carbon Economy Index released today, show that for the first time since 2000, no improvement has being made in reducing the carbon intensity (which reflects the fuel mix, energy efficiency and the balance of industry and services) of the G20, despite modest economic recovery globally. The results call into question the likelihood of global decarbonisation ever happening rapidly enough to limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius. "

The Guardian’s Damian Carrington has an excellent story on this report and another one by KPMG on the implications for UK energy policy.
