Description

As oil insecurity deepens, the extraction risks of fossil fuels rise and concerns about climate instability cast a shadow over the future of coal, a new world energy economy is emerging. The old economy, fuelled by oil, natural gas and coal is being replaced with one powered by wind, solar and geothermal energy.
