Enough rhetoric, it’s time to act: that’s the gist of a new report from the International Energy Agency, which says the world must bring about “a total transformation” of its energy systems if it hopes to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 and minimize the worst effects of climate change.
The agency is calling for a string of bold actions and aggressive deadlines in the report, which is a roadmap to zero out carbon emissions, either by reducing them or removing them through technology such as carbon capture.
I can just about guarantee that this report will be ignored.
