Today’s release of the World Energy Outlook (WEO) 2018 marked another missed opportunity for the International Energy Agency (IEA) to provide a roadmap to Paris success.
How the International Energy Agency Guides Energy Decisions towards Fossil Fuel Dependence and Climate Change
The IEA is steering the energy system towards catastrophic levels of warming. It continues to promote an energy future headed for around 3 degrees of warming, and acts as if the Paris Agreement never happened
Today the IEA finally released an energy forecast that aims for a greater chance of avoiding climate catastrophe. It is crucial that the IEA now retire its outdated 450 Scenario, and instead focus on how to keep warming well below 2ºC and aim for 1.5ºC.
The International Energy Agency neglects the Paris Agreement with its new World Energy Outlook. The world needs better odds than a coin toss of avoiding dangerous climate change
