G20 Summit Focuses on Technology to Control Climate Change

Nations attending the recent G20 summit agree that more investments in cleaner technologies need to be made in order to reduce climate change. The focus was on developing new technologies to keep the air clean, instead of just setting limits on how much greenhouse gases can be emitted. By working with the World Bank, these nations want to create incentives for large-scale private investment in environmental technologies, including renewable energy sources.

"There has been a lot of discussion about the false choice between targets and technologies, but the reality is that without both we cannot achieve either," read a statement by Tony Juniper, executive-director of Friends of the Earth.
