- That would require a 5% annual reduction going forward, which would be much faster than the 1.1% annual decline between 2007 and 2019.

- As Liam Denning at Bloomberg Opinion points out, that would require 80% reduction in emissions from the power sector, cutting methane emissions in half, plus finding another 1.2 billion tonnes of CO2 to cut, likely from transportation.
