African leaders’ dash for gas is raising tensions at the top of the UN and exposing Europe’s conflicted approach to the fuel.
Across Africa, gas is at the heart of a development versus decarbonisation challenge.
...“These European nations know that fossil fuels like gas are not the future and once they have their renewables up to speed, they will drop these new gas agreements,” Mohamed Adow, director of Power Shift Africa, told Climate Home.
“For Africa, it would be idiotic to invest our little resources to expand gas production just to help Europe in the short term when we could be investing in our own sustainable renewable energy,” he said.
