The newest World Energy Outlook report of the International Energy Agency warns that the world is "locking itself into an unsustainable energy future" with dramatic consequences for climate change.
It also explains that for every dollar "saved" now by not investing in clean energy and remaining in denial about the climate/energy crisis, the world will have to spend 4.30 dollars in the mid-term future to fight the effects of increased emissions and energy scarcity.
