"Despite all the set climate targets, increased energy use and emissions globally last year."
"Most of the increase came from fossil fuels, according to a new report."
"– the Fossil is too cheap, there must be increased taxes and fees, " says professor Johan Kuylenstierna. "
"The global energy use increased by 2.3 per cent in 2018."
"Of the increase accounted for 70% of fossil fuels. Solar and vindgenererad energy increased by more than 30 per cent but it was not enough to meet the increasingly higher demand for electric power in the world."
"the Report from the International energy council, the IEA shows that carbon dioxide emissions from the energy sector as a result increased by 1.7 per cent. "
"And the change has been very fast."
"An explanation is a robust economy. Another is the extreme weather with unusually high and low temperatures. 20% of the increase derived from the increased need of heating respectively cooling."
"China, the united states and India accounted for close to 70 percent of the growth in energy consumption. Gas continues to replace coal."
"”Fossil for cheap”"
"Professor Johan Kuylenstierna, deputy chairman of the Policy council, believes that there is much interesting data in the latest report."
"the Conclusion is clear," he says. We have not managed to turn the utsläppskurvorna, the conversion goes too slowly. "
" – the Fossil is too cheap and does not pay for the effects. Increased CO2-taxes or charges must be imposed, " he says and adds:" the
"– But renewable energy is also expanding greatly so there is still a glimmer of light, I mean. Hopefully the price will be on them to fall so low that it actually out-competing fossil energy sources."
"Even Sweden needs to do more."
"Jonas Allerup, klimatanalytiker at the environmental protection agency, says that the report shows that there is a need for much more, both in the world and in Sweden, to reduce emissions."
"– Also in Sweden, the rate of decline to slow. Emissions are increasing, they have not gone down yet and it is worrying. "
"– From 2020, they need to reduce if we are to have a likely chance to pass the 1.5-degree target."
"Ola Hansén, senior klimatexpert at the Wwf, says that the development is going in the completely wrong direction to what it would do. "
"– That renewables would have to grow even faster. "
" And to reach the 1.5 degree target is a challenge that is tougher than anything we've done in the past. However, the UN's intergovernmental panel on climate change has yet ruled that is not too late yet. It is still possible to achieve the objectives – this, however, requires tough decisions over the whole world."
