Carbon-cutting pledges from 146 nations are "far from enough" to stave off dangerous global warming, the U.N. warned Friday, three weeks ahead of a crucial climate summit in Paris.Without the INDCs, humanity is set to spew some 60 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent -- a measure that groups different greenhouse gases including methane and nitrous oxide -- into the atmosphere in 2030 .The INDCs would shave 6 billion tonnes off the top, leaving the total at 54 billion tonnes.But to keep the 2 C target on track, total emissions in 2030 should not exceed 42 billion tonnes, according to the U.N.'s climate science panel.
