Due to the socio-economic conditions, the global budget allocated on a country-by-country level cannot be utilized entirely without time constraints, as the 2°C-line can only be held if realistic decarbonization dynamics are taken into full account. Firstly, it takes decades to restructure emission-intensive infrastructures and production processes and to transform consumer behaviour, so there is no easy way to reduce global emissions at high speed. Secondly, global decarbonization must commence as soon as possible, as the best of our current knowledge indicates that any postponement now would necessitate emissions reductions at an unattainable rate in future.

Countries belonging to Group 2 or Group 3.  Examples of per-capita emissions paths of CO2 from fossil sources for three groups of countries according to the WBGU budget approach, which could emerge through emissions trading (unbroken curves). Here it is assumed that the countries of group 1 (> 5,4 t CO2 per capita per year) will raise their budgets by 75% by purchasing emission rights for 122 Gt CO2. The countries in group 2 (2,7–5,4 t CO2 per capita per year) purchase additional emission rights for a total amount of 41 Gt CO2.

E. postponement of the peak year to 2015, would trigger annual global emissions reduction requirements of up to 5% (as a fraction of 2008 emissions) (Fig. 1). In other words, the world would then have to meet annual emissions reduction targets equivalent to those established by the Kyoto Protocol for two full decades! And this would apply not only to the group of Annex-I countries but globally. e. reductions on an almost inconceivable scale, entailing technological feats and social sacrifices comparable to those of the Allied mobilization during the Second World War.
