    Scientists issue hands-off warning for fossil fuel reserves

    Keeping global warming below the 2 degree level means limiting cumulative carbon emissions to 1,100 gigatonnes till 2050. But a new study says that might prove illusory as the emissions contained in present day estimates of global fossil fuel reserves are around three times higher than this.
