Cleaner Future – level 3
As the coronavirus pandemic has filled hospitals, challenged populations, and decimated economies, it may be opening a door for new, sustainable future.
The International Energy Agency released a special report on sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 economic meltdown. The organization of 30 nations, that is based in Paris, France, is calling for global investments in clean energy technologies to broaden the recovery from the worst global economic shock since the 1930s. The agency said that the crisis gave governments a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transit from fossil fuels to a cleaner energy future.
The goal is to modernize building construction, transportation systems and the electrical grid while cutting down on carbon emissions.
Difficult words: decimate (to reduce something dramatically), sustainable (methods that do not harm the environment and that use natural resources that are available in the future), meltdown (a collapse).
