But now some bad news - UN says carbon cuts too slow

A UN report, reported by the BBC, says that we are making progress too slowly to prevent significant temperature rise:

"A report by the UN says global attempts to curb emissions of CO2 are falling well short of what is needed to stem dangerous climate change.
The UN's Environment Programme says greenhouse gases are 14% above where they need to be in 2020 for temperature rises this century to remain below 2C."
Urgent and decisive action could keep temperature rises this century below 2C but governments do not seem willing to do this... kick the can down the road some more...
