‘Carpe diem’; Africa can be energy giant

Category : Power Shift in the News | tags: Daily Nation

The latest study by the world’s top climate scientists gives us a stark warning and points to the direction we must run to end Africa’s climate crisis. But that is achievable only if the right policies are adopted.

Africa suffers climate change effects the most. The good news is, it can also lead the way in avoiding getting hooked to more fossil fuels and, instead, embracing the clean, green, renewable energy, ultimately putting to an end climate disasters.

With seven of the 10 sunniest countries, including Kenya, it is perfectly placed to become a clean energy superpower, which will help to prevent toxic emissions from fossil fuels and address energy poverty. 

If we choose to clog our air and water with climate-destroying fossil fuels, our economic gains will be undone by unbearable temperatures, erratic rainfall, severe droughts and devastating storms.
