Studies on Energy, CO2s and Water on the African Continent

African countries have a common position in that they emit little CO2 internationally, yet global warming will almost certainly have disastrous implications for the continent, which is expected to see rapid population growth. African governments have pledged to change their energy systems in order to contribute to the COP21 decarbonisation goals. They now have limited access to energy resources, which exacerbates their poverty. Solar, wind, and geo-thermal energy are examples of new renewables, whereas wood and coal are examples of ancient renewables. Energy reform must begin for the coal, oil, and gas-dependent giants. as must the many countries relying upon traditional biomass, or charcoal. The use of wood coal is simply too large for the survival of the African woods. Africa will require a lot of energy to deal with the impending water problem, since lakes and rivers are dwindling and being damaged by pollution, dams, and overfishing.
