U.S. agency says much of the rise expected to come from China, India

WASHINGTON - The amount of heat-trapping carbon dioxide seeping into the atmosphere will increase by nearly 40 percent worldwide by 2030 if ways are not found to require mandatory emission reductions, a U.S. government report said Wednesday.The Energy Information Administration said world energy consumption is expected to grow by 44 percent over the next two decades as the global economy recovers and continues to expand. The biggest increases in energy use will come from economically developing countries such as China and India.

Substantial growth is expected in the use of renewable energy sources such as hydropower, wind and solar, the report said. But it also said overall growth in demand will require continued reliance on fossil fuels, especially oil and coal.

:dead:

"demand will require continued reliance on fossil fuels, especially oil and coal." thus we will not be able to mitigate the damage enough to stop the change from giving a wide variety of life on the planet a nice kick into the grave. A 40% increase is a death sentence.
