2030: The Big Goal Year

The United Nations has set two goals that they'd like us all to reach by the end of the year twenty-thirty. The first is that it would like the 1.3 billion people who are without mainstream electricity to have access to it, and the second is that they want the global warming to be kept under 2°C.


But is this easier said than done? Perhaps. Why?


Each of these goals have a likely possibility of conflicting with one another. In order to increase the modern energy of electricity, we need to increase fossil fuels. But it is those same fossil fuels that has put the global warming crisis so high.


So will this become an instance of talking the talk and not being able to walk the walk as well?
