We have updated our global greenhouse gas (GHG) abatement curve to reflect the impact of the financial crisis on emissions and abatement economics. The business-as-usual emission projection for 2030 has dropped by only 6 percent relative to the pre-crisis estimate. The total abatement potential remains essentially the same while emission reductions might become cheaper in relative terms as a result of higher fossil fuel price expectations.
