The possible planet is 28 million light years away in the "Messier 51" galaxy, and was located by analyzing X-rays. Scientists say it may take decades to confirm.

The world is on track to warm 2.7°C by 2100, says UN — far above the 1.5°C Paris goal to avoid climate catastrophe.

▪️ Most top emitters not pledged to cutting emissions
▪️ Lowest emitters will be most impacted by crisis
