Tuesday’s Factors and Events
Fossils have added to pollution and toxins to the environment and also causing increased number of occupational diseases. Each stage of the fossil fuel supply chain – extraction through mining and drilling, transportation (spills), burning, fuel waste has had multiple damaging effects on humans and to all the components of our environment—water, land and air.
Despite the fallout of using fossil fuel, there is still a shortage of basic resources like electricity. An estimated 1.1 billion people have no access to electricity while 2.8 billion are without access to clean cooking facilities.
The concerns about climate change brought nations together to sign the Paris Accord in December 2015. It is estimated that renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) in developing countries will prevent 1.4 gigatons of emissions by 2020 and implementing these projects in developing countries can go a long way to making up shortfalls in Paris climate pledges, according to a report by UNEP and Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
