Greenhouse gas emissions are rising, and our addiction to fossil fuels is to blame.
That, in a nutshell, is the conclusion of an authoritative new UN
report published on April 13th. Emissions have not only continued to
increase, but have done so more rapidly in the last 10 years. While the
growing reliance on coal for global energy supplies is chiefly to blame
for the latest increase, the broader picture is that “economic growth
has outpaced emissions reductions.”
