Clean energy will fight poverty

December 6th 2016

A report by a large group of charities, research institutes and energy organisations was released in October, claiming a global movement towards renewable energy sources will help reduce global poverty.

Some politicians have been vocal about their support of the coal industry in recent years, including Australia's Environment & Energy Minister, who claimed continuing to use coal was the answer to poverty.

However, the report claims that if world leaders support renewable energies, more people will be able to acess energy.

Dr Alison Doig, Christian Aid’s Principal Climate Advisor, said: “Extreme poverty will only be eradicated if we effectively address climate change, the two are inseparable.”
