Clean Energy Revolution? The Numbers Make Sense

Although fossil fuels have powered and shaped the modern era they have also been a major contributing factor in the current climate crisis. However, energy will also be a key factor in coping with the consequences of climate change: a global clean energy revolution whose economic implications bring newfound hope for our future.

Responding to rising CO2 levels

The energy sector accounts for around 35% of CO2 emissions. This includes the burning of coal, natural gas, and oil for electricity and heat (25%), as well as other emissions not directly associated with electricity or heat production, such as fuel extraction, refining, processing, and transportation (a further 10%).
