Amsterdam. Greenpeace responded to today’s publication of the World Energy Outlook by the International Energy Agency, which warns leaders of the need for strong action to reduce greenhouses gases within five years, by calling for energy demands to be met by renewable energy, and for a phase-out of nuclear power. “The IEA’s report reflects what Greenpeace has been saying for years; the increase in average global temperature must be kept to 2 degrees Celsius. It also moves closer to Greenpeace’s analysis that the world urgently needs an Energy [R]evolution [1], with much more of our energy demands filled by renewable energy, along with energy conservation”, said Greenpeace International senior energy campaigner Sven Teske.“However, the IEA is once again putting politics ahead of science by suggesting that a reduction in nuclear power will lead to higher energy costs and emissions – the opposite is the case. A combination of energy efficiency and renewables would be the way forward and could lead to a complete phase-out of nuclear power by 2035, while lowering electricity costs and carbon emissions”.
