TheVoiceOfJoyce The War in Ukraine is driving many countries to go renewable energy. The UN believes to maintain National Security, many countries interest in Fossil Fuels will peak early and they’ll embrace Solar, wind, hydrogen, nuclear power. It’s a necessity that we do it sooner, to avoid exceeding 1.5 degrees Celsius. Already we’re seeing a loss of shell fish, salmon, sturgeon, emperor penguins, whales and the list continues. Whole swaths of Africa have returned to deserts. California is in another drought year. The quest to sustain life will push us towards innovations and the Inflation Reduction Act, provides Billions to States for investment in renewable infrastructure. We can save our resources, if we vote for the Party that has always espoused Climate mitigation. It’s not the Republicans, they’re the climate deniers, beholden to the Fossil Fuel corporations, even if their use, kills us. Make Climate and resource preservation your priority and vote in the 2022 midterms, our lives depend on everyone’s vote!

While some countries have been burning more fossil fuels such as coal this year in response to natural gas shortages caused by the war in Ukraine, that effect is expected to be short-lived, the International Energy Agency said in its annual World Energy Outlook, a 524-page report that forecasts global energy trends to 2050.

Instead, for the first time, the agency now predicts that worldwide demand for every type of fossil fuel will peak in the near future.

One major reason is that many countries have responded to soaring prices for fossil fuels this year by embracing wind turbines, solar panels, nuclear power plants, hydrogen fuels, electric vehicles and electric heat pumps. In the United States, Congress approved more than $370 billion in spending for such technologies under the recent Inflation Reduction Act. Japan is pursuing a new “green transformation” program that will help fund nuclear power, hydrogen and other low-emissions technologies. China, India and South Korea have all ratcheted up national targets for renewable and nuclear power.
