To combat climate change is a major – energy crisis. And it can’t come at a more critical time.
Leaders and negotiators for COP26 global climate talks will meet in Glasgow, Scotland, in just three weeks. Momentum set a deadline for coal and accelerated the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy before the crisis.
But a return to fossil fuels warns some experts that this momentum could delay that transition to the nearest coal mine in history.
Christine Sherrer, director of the Coal Program at the Global Energy Monitor, said: Fossil fuels around the world.
As winter approaches and the world economy grows faster than the Covenant-19 epidemic, governments are forced to find more available energy sources. Renewable energy sources such as wind and solar are not enough to meet demand.
“Many decision-makers are shocked in some ways about social reactions,” said the program leader at the European Climate Tank E3G.
Investing in fossil fuels is not the answer, and some short-term solutions are the opposite of long-term goals.
It would be a better “response” to the implementation of renewable and energy efficiency programs, including on-ground infrastructure projects disrupted by the epidemic.
And that includes the dithotomy of the problem – the world can “turbocharge” or rejuvenate infants, and it can rely more on fossil fuels as it is now.
In addition to recovering from a pandemic, there are many reasons for the overcrowding. Renewable energy was lower than expected: In the UK and continental Europe, there was less wind than usual in the summer, so wind did not reach. Low rainfall in China indicates less energy than the country’s hydroelectric power plants.
Chinese authorities have placed coal from Australia at the port, and the two countries have refused to show Australia’s willingness to take exports due to Canberra’s call for an investigation into the VV-19. That only increased the country’s energy shortages.
China has already been developing its economy with dozens of new coal plants, but a recent increase in production is a problem for COP26 – China has begun to show that it is ready to play a role in placing the last days on fossils. Fuel.
China is not alone. In this crisis, European leaders are signaling that fossil fuels will be difficult to stop.
Last month, the UK set fire to an old coal mine to meet electricity demand. And some countries in the European Union are considering opening coal and oil fields to prevent similar power outages.
There has also been controversy in the European Parliament, where climate change is clear. In the face of an emergency, some leaders say the European Union will lose support in the absence of an effective short-term action to combat consumer balloon consumption.
European Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson, for his part, said the green deal would be “the only solution to Europe’s energy crisis” and a more renewable and improved energy efficiency solution.
“The current inflation has little to do with our climate policy, and it has a lot to do with the dependence on imported fossil fuels and relative prices,” Samson said Wednesday.
Wind and sun continue to generate the cheapest electricity in Europe in recent months. They are not subject to price fluctuations.
The effect of knocking in America
In the United States, there is a crisis over rising oil prices, which is linked to widespread energy shortages. Some countries that are struggling to find enough natural gas are turning to oil to fill the gap.
Benden has appealed to OPEC + – a group of oil-producing countries and their partners – to increase global oil production, as the increase in supply softens the price of Pam.
By entering a climate conference, fossil fuels are having a huge impact on fossil fuels – in my mind, I think it may be enough to double the number of renewables in some countries, ”said Charles Moore. Director of the European Program on Amber Climate.
“I think the UK is a great example. “Britain has come out in 2035 to fully approve the electricity system.”
