Massive gas expansion risks overtaking positive climate policies

Massive LNG expansion plans will seriously compromise meeting the 1.5°C limit. New CAT analysis finds the LNG capacity now under construction, coupled withexpansion plans, could increase emissions by over 1.9 GtCO2e per year in 2030 above emission levels consistent with the IEA’s Net Zero by 2050 scenario. This pipeline of new plants massively exacerbates the fact that existing capacity (as of 2021) will exceed IEA NZE needs by 2030.
