Industrialised nations cut their emissions

If you are fed up with bad news on climate change and how poorly we are acting on the largest threat to the survival of our civilization, please read further. To Reuters : ” Industrialised nations’ greenhouse gas emissions dipped 0.7 percent in 2011 “

A tiny 0.7 percent cut sure isn’t what we need, but it’s a start. Given how little we are doing on energy transition, one can hope that once we will be set on specific targets, we could deliver major greenhouse gases emissions cuts.

Good or excellent news are popping up all around the world and I want to see there a tidal change in favor of cleantech. The fact that renewables are reaching grid parity all over the world will sure accelerate the process.
