Climate Change Is Needed Now
The IEA has warned everyone to brace themselves for the biggest energy revolution the world has ever seen. The economic crises gives us and the electricity suppliers the opportunity to make things right in the world by spearheading a worldwide low carbon energy surge that will fight global warming and ensure we have enough energy supplies around the globe.
A Very little amount of people actually realize the size of the tasks we face in the next few decades to tackle global warming whilst still supplying the energy that we have become so reliant on over the last 100 years.
The International Energy Agency said:“But it can and must be met,” it said. “The time to act has arrived.”
The reality of the damages that climate change “will” cause is starting to became clear, yet while everyone is making a lot of noises about it and setting targets the question has to be asked: Are we doing enough? We all know the answer to that is no, but countries who laughed at the idea 10 years ago (including the United States of America) are starting to come round and year by year we have more and more countries signing up to agreements to reduce our carbon footprint.
Just next month (December 2009) the landmark international Conference will be held in Copenhagen. The IEA is expected to tell the top 30 industrialized countries that they along with the rest of the planet will face dire consequences if they continue with their current policies on energy and climate change.
Change is needed, and now.
