The G-20 countries — including China — will fail to meet global warming targets set in the Paris Agreement if current trends continue, a new report says.

The international forum’s members — which include the world’s largest economies — have each set national carbon emissions goals that would lead on average to a long-term global temperature increase of 3.2 C, higher than the 2 C limit set in the 2016 Paris Agreement on climate change, according an annual report published Wednesday by NGO alliance Climate Transparency, ahead of the G-20 summit later this month.
