Spreading Renewable Energy to Developing Countries

Developing nations are some of the most important players in the fight against climate change. As countries like China and India grow rapidly, it is necessary that they meet as much of their energy needs with renewables as possible. It’s a difficult task, but it must be done, says Dr. Bob Watson, Chief Scientist and Director for Environmentally and Socially Sustainable Development at the World Bank.

Dr. Watson talks with us about how to lower greenhouse gas emissions in developing countries through a global financial vehicle. Dr. Watson was also Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change from 1996-2002, so he’ll describe how awareness of climate change has changed over the last few years. Also in the podcast: Towns and cities across the U.S. are increasingly looking at local solutions to our global environmental problems. We’ll examine a couple of localities that are trying to grow in a more sustainable way through green building techniques, carbon taxes and support of renewable energy. Inside Renewable Energy offers the latest in renewable energy news and information.
