    > Africa is poised to lead the world's cleanest economic revolution by using renewable energy sources to power a massive spread of urbanisation, says an IEA report.

    > The report forecasts that Africa's appetite for energy will grow at double the rate of the global average in the coming decades as the continent overtakes China and India as the most populated region in the world.

    > "But while Africa does not contribute to climate change the continent is on the frontline of its potential effects, including droughts. Africa is perhaps the most innocent continent in terms of its contributions to climate change, but they will be the victims.”

  2. I hope they do and that the western countries can see that as an example and evidence that it is possible to transition. I’m scared of China/Russian influence over there tho. Coal plants etc.

  3. Just 1 comment, huh. Obviously this article isnt gonna be a denier magnet, like so many Greta Thunberg topics.
