IEA Report Outlines What Would Be Necessary to Meet Worldwide Zero Emissions by 2050
The world’s leading energy agency, the International Energy Agency (IEA) released a report stating that governments and officials are not fully aware of what would be necessary to actually reach net zero emissions by 2050.
According to IEA there is a list of things that would have to occur immediately to keep the average global temperature from reaching a level where the world faces irreversible damage.
The IEA report includes a roadmap of what it would take which includes nations would have to immediately phase out gas-powered vehicles and stop approving new coal-fired power plants and new oil and gas fields.
Despite what environmentalists and the report claims, Congress is unlikely to put a price on carbon dioxide emissions through a carbon tax or cap and trade program this congress.
