Climate Scoreboard for Copenhagen

Business as usual, significa "seguir como hasta ahora"
Dec 13/14/... proposals, significa "propuestas del 13/14/... de Diciembre de 2009"
Goals, significa "objetivo" para frenar el calentamiento.

The Climate Scoreboard is a new, easily accessible tool from the Sustainability Institute. It helps us understand and track global climate change negotiations in real time. This new online resource — an embeddable widget, a short video, and a set of graphs and a table — reports, on a daily basis, the long-term climate implications of proposals to the United Nations negotiations in Copenhagen.

The Scoreboard team will follow the negotiations in Copenhagen from day to day, and continue tracking progress in the months following the conference, addressing the question: if current proposals for emissions reductions were implemented how much future warming would be avoided?

Share the widget on your blog, website, or Facebook page here or by clicking at the bottom next to “Get and Share.” It will automatically update as the global climate deal improves.

Let’s move that blue line down!

Today, in advance of the opening of the Copenhagen Conference, the Climate Scoreboard shows that, while current proposals would reduce warming in 2100 relative to a scenario with no reductions in emissions, proposals are not yet ambitious enough to limit temperature increase to 1.5-2°C (2.7-3.6°F) over pre-industrial temperatures.

Hoy, anticipándose a la apertura de la Conferencia de Copenhague, el Climate Scoreboard nos muestra que, si bien las actuales propuestas reducirían el calentamiento en el año 2100 respecto a un escenario sin reducción de emisiones de CO2, no son lo suficientemente ambiciosas como para limitar el incremento de temperatura en 1,5-2ºC por encima de las temperaturas preindustriales.

The Scoreboard estimates a temperature increase of 3.8°C (6.8°F) over pre-industrial if current proposals were implemented as compared to 4.8°C (8.7°F) temperature increase by 2100 without emissions reductions.

El Scoreboard estima un incremento de 3,8ºC por sobre la temperatura pre-industrial si las actuales propuestas fueran implementadas, en comparación con los 4,8ºC de aumento de temperatura hacia el 2100 sin reducción de emisiones de CO2.
