IEA: In 2040, annual CO2 emission rises will still be greater than zero. If so, we are cooked.

IEA's webinar: The Outlook for Renewable Energy: "Implementation of the climate pledges will slow down the projected rise in energy-related CO2 emissions from an average of 2.4% per year since 2000 to 0.5% per year to 2040. 
What about heat? Unless greenhouse gases are decreasing, heat will continue to rise. We have already had heat waves over 40C that have killed hundreds.

What will be the GDP in 2040. What will be the population. We are growing -- and maintaining what we have already developed will make more heat.
