Earth Day has come and gone..
Earth Day has come and gone, but it’s a fact of daily — and especially nightly — life that 1.6 billion people around the globe have no electricity in their homes. Instead, most use wood, coal or even dung to heat and cook their homes — resulting in indoor air pollution that kills 1.6 million people a year.
It’s not expected to improve much, and in Africa it’s predicted to worsen.
By 2030, when Earth’s population will likely top 8 billion, 1.3 billion people will still lack electricity, the International Energy Agency estimates. Of those, 700 million will be in Africa, and 490 million in South Asia.
Be aware, give help if you can, be kind to the earth, and our future…..
