Study: Clean energy shift promises global growth FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Strong action to combat climate change could cumulatively add at least $26 trillion to the world economy by 2030, according to a study on Wednesday which seeks to dispel fears that a shift from fossil fuels will undermine growth.President Donald Trump, for instance, said last year that he will pull the United States out of a global climate pact called the Paris Agreement because it would impose what he called “draconian financial and economic burdens” on his country.By contrast, the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, which includes former heads of government, business leaders and economists, said there was “unprecedented momentum” toward greener growth that would boost jobs and countries’ economies. Bold climate action could deliver at least $26 trillion in net cumulative benefits from now until 2030 compared with business as usual, it said.“There’s still a perception that moving toward a low-carbon path would be costly,” lead author Helen Mountford told Reuters. “What we are trying to do with this report is once and for all put the nails in the coffin on that idea.”A shift from fossil fuels to cleaner energies such as wind and solar power would avoid 700,000 premature deaths from air pollution in 2030, it added. The report recommended high prices on carbon dioxide emissions of $40-$80 per tonne by 2020 in major economies.More: Greener growth could add $26 trillion to world economy by 2030: study

They however remain 5th on the log having played just 10 games.For Vipers SC, they succumbed to a first loss of the season and also a first in 16 league games since they lost 2-1 at home to URA FC last season.KCCA FC pass first test in bid to defend titleKCCA FC are hoping to win a third successive league title having won both of the previous two in 2017/18 and 2018/19.They have endured a difficult start to the season having been dumped out of continental football and also started slowly domestically, as per their standards.They came into the game having lost two games already and without the services of captain Charles Lukwago, Nicholas Kasozi and Allan Okello who are all with the national team preparing to take on Malawi in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Sunday.They knew that a loss to Vipers would put their chances of defending the title in absolute jeopardy.However, they passed the test with a wounderful professional display that will surley motivate them to climb up the table.The Kasasiros started strongly, winning two corners inside the opening three minutes.Mustafa Kizza attempted to break the dead-lock but his lobbed effort was parried by Fabien Mutombora. Kizza also saw a free-kick fly over after Siraje Ssentamu handled outside the box.Erisa Ssekisambu was at the heart of most of KCCA FC’s chances created in the first period and he saw a weak effort saved with by Mutombora.Eria Ssekisambu(L) tried to fend off a challenge from Aziz Kayondo (R) on Saturday.The former Venom then played in Jackson Nunda who headed tamely at Mutombora.Players always love playing against their former employers and it was also the case for Ssekisambu on Saturday as he was hands down the best performer on the day.On 31 minutes, he made a good run own the right, turned Aziz Kayondo inside and teed the ball on for Muzamir who shot first time and found the back of the net in what proved to be the winning goal in the end.Ssekisambu could have gotten onto the score-sheet himself but failed to beat Mutombora in a one on one situation before shooting over after he was teed up by substitute Steven Sserwadda.Vipers fail to live up to early season hypeVipers who were with out top scorer-Fahad Bayo and captain Halid Lwalia (National team duty) have so far been the most impressive side in the league and rightfully sit top of the pile.They came into Saturday’s game holding a five point lead on top of the log and were also 14 points above KCCA FC.However, they failed miserably in their attempts to prove that it is their title to lose.In the game, they started slowly and it took them 68 minutes to register a shot on target.Their first attempt on target came on 33 minutes with Brian Nkubi shooting wide from just outside the area.Rahmat Ssenfuka also shot over, from diastance at the start of the second half.The Venoms looked to have started growing into the game especially after Allan Kayiwa was brought on early in the second half.Ssentamu had two efforts from distance miss the target. The first went wide will the other sailed over.Kayiwa got a chance to draw Vipers level with three minutes left on the clock but his effort, after turning Filbert Obenchan was parried to safety by the out-stretched Malyamungu.It was a disappointing result for Vipers who started the season in inspiring fashion. They will have a chance to make amends when they take on Maroons FC in their last game of the first round.For KCCA FC, they now have five more games to play until they end their first round. If they can win all of them, they will be top of the pile after 15 games.How both teams lined upKCCA Starting XIJamil Malyamungu (G.K), Fillbert Obenchan, Mustafa Kizza (Captain), Samuel Kato, John Revita, Ali Abubakar Gift, Keziron Kizito, Jackson Nunda, Muzamiru Mutyaba, Erisa Ssekisambu, Mike MutyabaSubstitutesAli Mwirusi (G.K), Musa Ramathan, Herbert Achai, Steven Sserwadda, John Egbuonu Odumegwu, Sam Ssenyonjo, Joseph KafumbeVipers SC starting XIFabien Mutombora (G.K), Paul Willa, Aziz Kayondo, Bashir Asiku, Geoffrey Wasswa (Captain), Siraje Ssentamu, Brian Nkuubi, Rahmat Ssenfuka, Tito Okello, Dan Sserunkuma, Innocent WafulaSubstitutesDerrick Ochan (GK), Ibrahim Tembo, Farouk Musisi, Abraham Ndugwa, Frank Tumwesigye, Brian Kalumba, Abraham Ndugwa.Comments Tags: Allan Kayiwaallan okelloerisa ssekisambuFahad BayoJamal MalyamunguKCCA FCMike MutebiMuzamir MutyabaUganda Premier Leaguevipers sc
The deaths of two people in less than two weeks in Playa Esterillos, on the Central Pacific, has local residents concerned, as it is the same number of deaths that occurred from drowning during all of last year.Rose Mary Chamberlain told the daily La Nación that Esterillos is one of the most visited beaches in the region, but there are few lifeguards monitoring the area. She also said neighbors agreed that the lack of support from both local businesses and the government makes it hard to hire lifeguards.The first person who drowned this year at the beach was Esterillos resident Rodrigo Rodríguez Jiménez, 60, on Jan. 13.Colorado native Michael McKinsckly, 65, died on Jan. 21 when a large wave knocked him down, likely breaking his neck, Red Cross officials said. The incident occurred while McKinsckly was on a boogie board in the water.Red Cross paramedic Francisco Pérez said that rescue operations are difficult because Esterillos is 47 kilometers (30 miles) away from Parrita, the nearest Red Cross facility.“It takes us 15 to 20 minutes to arrive. That is the difference between life and death,” Pérez told La Nación.Police officer Carlos Salas said Esterillos has always been a dangerous beach, and “although there are many signs both in English and Spanish to warn visitors, tourists frequently disregard the warnings.” Facebook Comments No related posts.
