Prelimsverse: What is Climate Action Tracker?

The Climate Action Tracker (CAT) is an independent scientific analysis that tracks government climate action and measures it against the globally agreed Paris Agreement aim of “holding warming well below 2°C, and pursuing efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.”
 A collaboration of two organisations, Climate Analytics and NewClimate Institute (both are non-profit institutes), the CAT has been providing this independent analysis to policymakers since 2009.
CAT calculates global warming consequence and emissions gaps [ The gap in 2030 between the emissions levels needed to limit warming below a 2°C increase above pre-industrial levels (and to bring warming below 1.5°C by 2100) and the emissions that are projected to result from NDCs, pledges and current policies].
CAT tracks 39 countries and the EU covering around 85% of global emissions.
