Countries' fossil fuel production plans out of sync with Paris limits: UN report

Over the next two decades, governments are collectively projecting an increase in global oil and gas production and only a modest decrease in coal production.
The report finds out that the world’s governments plan to produce around 110% more fossil fuels in 2030 than would be consistent with limiting warming to 1.5°C.(Representational photo / AP)
