“Irreversible Climate Change Will Occur in 5 Years if Major Infrastructure is Not Changed
According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the world is currently backing itself into a corner where irreversible climate change will most likely occur in just five years. The Agency — an autonomous organization that provides comprehensive statistics and recommendations for world leaders on energy — just released their 2011 World Energy Outlook, the most comprehensive analysis yet of the world energy infrastructure. The agency found that with the amount of fossil fuel-run buildings and factories that are set to be built in the next five years, the human race will finally be locked into the critical mass of emissions that will push the Earth past the point of no return. The only way to turn back on this deadly course to a global climate change of 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit is to immediately change direction toward low-emission technology but looking at the IEA statistics doesn’t give much us hope that such a major change will occur.”
