World must end 'dirty' fuel use - UN

World must end 'dirty' fuel use - UN | E-mobility and renewable energy | Scoop.it
A long-awaited report on how to curb climate change says the world must rapidly move away from carbon-intensive fuels.
Sass Peress's insight:

Its time to take a hard look at the costs that dirty fuel imposes on us which are not calculated at the pump. When put together with subsidies which are also hidden, the real comparison can be made to renewable, clean energy. Only when these truths are brought out from under the propaganda of the oil industry, can we make thoughtful decisions about energy choices.
