Vietnam stood between choosing or backwards or straight proceed to the goal of clean energy as the general trend of the world.

A study in 2015 of Stanford University, California (United States) launched a roadmap for 139 countries and speak up about the development of the strength of the economy with sustainable development of renewable forms of energy such as wind power, solar energy and hydro power to 2050. This work laid out the agenda of the world can reach the "80% of the WWS" ( wind, water and sunlight) in 2030 and reaches 100% in 2050.

All World Summit on Environment and Development are committed to sustainable development through a new approach on the building of the municipality, from which arise out of the new calling "Urban sustainability", "Eco-municipality" and then to "Smart city". They all want to progress to the goal of building the modern municipality, to meet the needs of human development but still guarantee the quality of the environment, the health of the people, minimized the break the natural landscape, and preserving the natural resources.

Forest biomass use for energy production is a disastrous practice that needs to be curtailed - it has not only gotten out of hand as an industrial activity and global trade but is also blinding citizens to how the carbon cycle works, notably how emissions intensive forest biomass is across its production chain, and how much it contributes to depleting forest sols, important for the management of greenhouse gas emissions.

 The new EU Directive on Renewable Energy threatens to double energy from forest products, even beyond the EU's capacity to produce pellets and chips. The WCRE calls for excluding forest biomass from the list of Renewables: its CO2 emissions are even 80% higher than those of coal - it is not climateneutral.

The following scientifc call is in keeping with what we are pushing: rapidly expanding solar, wind and sustainable water power to a full 100% world-wide, while restoring our forests', wetlands', sea grass' and agriculture's ability to reduce greeenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere.

EVEN IF DONALD TRUMP DOES NOT YET ‚BELIEVE IN’ CLIMATE CHANGE – there are millions of reasons for the fundamental transformation of the world’s energy systems to renewable resources.

Millions of lives have been sacrificed on the altar of fossil fuels – and many million more are doomed if we will not make the switch to renewable energy world-wide. To work for peace means finally leaving the 20th century behind, a century of war and an age of conflict exacerbated by fatal energy systems. It is in our common interest to lay down arms and join in the struggle against our own inherited energy and resource dependencies.

State of The Transition, August 2016: Tailwinds for clean energy and the Paris agreement, deepening doldrums for the incumbency

It was vaguely wonderful watching Presidents Obama and Xi cement their bids for a place in history, via climate change, by announcing American and Chinese ratification of the Paris Agreement on 3rd September 2016. These two nations, so far apart on so many issues, have erected glass walls around the shared climate threat and worked hard together for four years to fight it. They do so now buoyed by the strengthening momentum of climate-survival technologies, and aware of the increasing catalogue of problems faced by the energy incumbency notwithstanding climate considerations. Meanwhile, the increasingly alarming warnings they hear about the unfolding pace of global overheating from their respective scientific establishments is undoubtedly a major motivator. The great global race against time has very much begun now, and they are the undisputed leaders on the first lap.
