Decoupling economic growth from fossil fuels

6 Jun 2017
Description

Abstract: The decoupling of fossil fuels from economic growth has not been imaginable for most of the industrial era but is now underway. The data for this are presented for the world and for typical nations. The mechanisms behind this are outlined and suggest that climate change goals to end poverty and to achieve the phasing out of fossil fuels are achievable if the trends are mainstreamed.
