Josep (Pep) Canadell, from the Global Carbon Project, informed the science community that the Global Carbon Project has just released the 2012 update of the Global Carbon Budget.

This year’s budget includes the latest trends in global and regional carbon dioxide emissions and sinks, and analysis of how these trends relate to keeping global temperatures below 2C.

A commentary in Nature Climate Change focuses on comparing observed emission trends with four generations of IPCC emissions scenarios and considers the mitigation challenge to keep temperatures below 2C.

A detailed manuscript in Earth System Science Data Discussions describes the full carbon budget (emission sources and sinks), and the methods and data used.
