Too much CO2 in the air is bad for us and bad for the environment. Production of dangerous greenhouse gases needs to be reduced, and we also need technologies to capture and use CO2.
Many countries have heating systems that still run on coal, oil and gas. But relying on these fossil fuels to keep us warm through winter adds to CO2 emissions. So what are some of the climate-friendly alternatives?
Unless global greenhouse gas emissions fall by 7.6 per cent each year, the world will fail to meet the 1.5°C temperature goal of the Paris Agreement, a report from the UN Environment Programme warns.
With much electricity already coming from renewable energy, there is great potential for e-mobility in Kenya. But tackling air pollution through sustainable transport solutions has its challenges too.
Coal and other fossil fuels remain lucrative despite the fact that investing in them is becoming increasingly risky. That's one reason some banks and global funds are backing renewables. Is this the start of a rethink?
