Global Warming Forecast Cut on Plans of Biggest Polluters

Climate researchers lowered their forecast for global warming for the first time since 2009 after the greenhouse gas polluters agreed to limit their emissions over the next 15 years, a group of European academics said.

Efforts by the U.S., European Union and China will cut the outlook for global temperatures this century by as much as 0.4 degrees Celsius (0.7 degrees Fahrenheit), according to the Climate Action Tracker, a joint project by four European institutions.
