13 February 2018: Climate Change News publishes the draft IPCC report which warns that it will be very difficult to keep the temperature increase below the 1.5ºC foreseen in the "historic" Paris agreement. 14 February: Spain broke its record for oil imports in 2017 for the third consecutive year. 18 February 2018: The oil company Cepsa announces a new investment of 1,200 million € for a hydrocarbon exploitation project in the United Arab Emirates....
