World carbon dioxide emissions are estimated to have risen 2.7 percent from 2017 to 2018, according to three studies released Wednesday from the Global Carbon Project, an worldwide scientific collaboration of academics, governments and industry that tracks greenhouse gas emissions.
The Paris Agreement is potentially the strongest health agreement of this century, in not only addressing the health risks associated with climate change through mitigation and adaptation mechanisms, but also in helping ensure the attainment of the SDGs, which are integral to good health.
Last year, Carbon dioxide pollution increased by 1.6% after a three-year hiatus that raised hopes manmade greenhouse gas emissions had finally peaked despite an expanding world economy.
The Paris accord set a goal of limiting the rise in global temperatures to less than two degrees Celsius by 2030.
Attenborough said: "Right now we are facing a manmade disaster of global scale, our greatest threat in thousands of years: climate change". The 28 European Union nations will collectively record a decline in emissions by 0.7% as compared to past year.
Global CO2 emissions are rising, with growing electricity generation in China among the reasons.
Globally, the Carbon dioxide emissions this year is likely to touch 37.12 billion tonnes, which is 2.7 per cent more than the previous year.
"That was very exciting".

The chances of avoiding risky climate change are diminishing after a 2.7 per cent projected increase in carbon dioxide emissions to 37.1 billion tonnes, scientists said. That was one thousandth of the world total of 36,153 million tonnes. According to the GCB, the projections for 2018 put emission growth in India at 6.3% this year over 2017 followed by 4.7% rise in China and 2.5% in the US.
"Additional increases in 2019 remain uncertain but appear likely because of persistent growth in oil and natural gas use and strong growth projected for the global economy".
Though coal use contributed to the rise in 2018 from a year ago, it still remains below its historical high in 2013 but may exceed that if current growth continues, the study's authors.
Nations more immediately threatened by climate change, including Fiji, are urging for nations to act now.
According to Wednesday's report, the world is producing 37.1 bn metric tonnes of carbon dioxide a year, up from 36.2 bn metric tonnes in 2017. The US was second with 5270 million, India third with 2467 million, Russian Federation fourth with 1693 million, Japan fifth with 1205 million, and Germany sixth with 799 million.
