The countries are falling short of Far action on climate change that the use of fossil fuels increases to address, says Energy Report

Countries in the climate change plans that you need to prevent temperatures to rise to a dangerous level that governments have promised to prevent nowhere to be addressed, according to a new report of the International Energy Agency (IEA). The use of fossil fuels, in particular continues to expand globally, putting the world on a dangerous track for increased emissions. At the center of the prospects for the IEA is the energy demand: a measure of the amount of energy we use to heat our homes, run our cars and power our factories and, by extension, a measure of the changes of our emissions climate-causing pollutants. The global energy demand increased by 2.3% in 2018, last year, the most since 2010, according to the report. And under the current policy in use because of climate change caused fossil fuels, including coal, oil and natural gas will continue in the coming years at a rate of 1.3% per year by 2040. “L ‘ extension of the environmental impact of these high energy consumption patterns, “the report warns. “And to mitigate wave of initiatives and pressure to that effect it has yet to make a decisive mark on the data.” The implementation of the plans, countries have already announced changes in the outlook. But while these represent an improvement plans, which still leave the demand for energy is growing by 1% per year. In this scenario, it would grow dramatically in the supply of renewable energy, but so would the use of natural gas. It would be important, oil and coal remain essential parts of the power consumption. The report uses the objective of maintaining the temperature increase “well below 2 ° C” as a reference point for its scenery of “sustainable development”. Nearly 200 countries have unanimously agreed that the goal in 2015 negotiations that led to the Paris Agreement. But while global point of reference objectives set Paris Deal, it requires countries to reduce their voluntary commitments for developing countries, and emissions are lower. Since then, scientists have warned that temperatures have increased by 1 ° C since the Industrial Revolution and that if they stop rising even half a degree the face dramatic world consequences, including the loss of coral reefs in, mass migration induced the world’s climate and serious threats to the global economy. The IEA scenario “sustainable development” – a potential way, rather than a recommendation – suggests that the demand for energy in the coming years to fall to reach the climate targets of Paris. The scenario could also promote international development and universal access to energy. The use of coal, in particular, should be reduced close to zero, while the oil must fall dramatically. To achieve this goal, the IEA the ball directly into the courtyard of the government. “The need for clear signals and effective and clear direction is greater than ever,” the report said.
