I:  Do you think that carbon emissions will push up global temperatures?
E:  We've  already had an increase in global temperatures of zero point five degrees Celsius.  In  future, if no action is  taken, we can expect a  further rise in global temperatures of between two and three degrees Celsius by 2060.
I:  Is that certain?
E:  No. But it's a  75% possibility.
I:  Is this the worst that could happen in  the future?
E:  By no means. There's a  50% chance that average global temperatures could rise by five  degrees Celsius, also by 2060.
I:  So how could  we avoid this?
E:  Well, we need to stabilise our carbon emissions by 2030. After that, we would need to reduce emissions by between  1% and 3%.
I:  I see. What are your views on switching energy sources?
E:  In our opinion, it’s essential to promote all  the technologies for cleaner  energy  and cleaner transport. We should aim to have non-carbon-based fuels accounting for 60% of energy output by 2050.
I:  So will that reduce carbon emissions in the long term?
E:  Yes, it will. We need to set two new European targets: to  reduce carbon emissions by 30% by 2020, and by 60% by 2050.
I:  What was that last figure?
E:  Our carbon emissions in  2050 need to be 60% lower than they are now.
I:  Thank you for clarifying those parts of your report.
