I spend much of my time studying carbon pollution trends, analyzing growing evidence of global warming, and assessing the impacts of a warmer climate. Thus, I recently found myself in agreement with scientists when they moved the symbolic doomsday clock closer to midnight (planetary catastrophe) in part because of global inaction on climate change. At the same time, I remain optimistic about our collective ability to face the crisis. Why? Because even as we’re racing against time to combat climate change, we’re also moving forward in the clean energy race.
OSLO, June 2 (Reuters) — The world should more than double reliance on renewable en- ergy by 2030 as part of goals to slow climate change in a drive that will need strong backing from the private sector, a senior U.N. official said on Thursday.
“The new goal is to have 30 percent of energy supplies from renewable sources by 2030,” Kandeh Yumkella, head of the U.N. Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), told Reuters in a telephone interview.
About 13 percent of energy used now comes from renewable sources, mostly firewood burnt in developing nations where many people lack electricity for needs such as lighting or heat- ing. Hydro, wind, geothermal and solar power play smaller roles.
The renewables target would add to a U.N. drive to widen supplies of electricity to everyone by 2030 — about 2.5 billion people now have little or no access — and to improve world energy efficiency by 40 percent by 2030, he said.
