Abstract

A weather beaten economy has become a wake up call. The International Energy Agency predicts that carbon emissions will rise 130 percent and oil demand will rise 70 percent by 2050. A sound energy policy that addresses climate change relies upon widespread transfer and implementation of environmentally sound technology. Multilateral cooperation can achieve environmentally sound technology transfer within in a meaningful time frame to address climate change.
