Encouraging the Usage of Renewable Energy Resources

Greta Thunberg is a well-known Swedish climate change activist. She held a sign saying “School Strike for Climate”, to pressure the government to meet carbon emissions targets.Her small campaign had a global effect, inspiring thousands of young people across the world to organise their own strikes. In 2019, Thunberg sailed across the Atlantic on a yacht to attend a UN climate conference in New York.

Delivering what is probably her most famous speech, she angrily told world leaders they were not doing enough. “You all come to us young people for hope. How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,” she said. Greta’s speech inspired me to harness the power of data to achieve the sustain development goal number 12 which is ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns.

After analyzing the data from world development indicators, countries having high access to electricty depends more on non- renewable resources, that have a high footprint on global climate change. On the other hand, according to the map, countries that have high access to electricity showed that they don’t depend on renewable energy resources for electric consumption. That’s why United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change should urge countries with high access to electricity to depend more on renewable energy resources for electric consumption.

Also, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change should address the problem of high dependency on non- renewable energy resources in the next international climate change summit that is held in UN headquarters in New York. In a nutshel, countries should consider producing and consuming electricty from renwable energy resources to combat climate change.
