It will also include US energy officials, as Washington shifts course under President Joe Biden, who has pledged to tackle climate change. US President Joe Biden answers questions from the media after signing a “Made in America” Executive Order in the South Court Auditorium at the White House on January 25, 2021 in Washington.  Photo: AFP”We believe the real success of this transition is critically hinging on whether or not citizens will benefit from the opportunities and how we navigate the disruptions of clean energy transitions,” IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol said. “Employment will change, some sectors will gain significantly while others inevitably decline. Governments will need to proactively prepare for change and to protect those adversely affected,” he told a webinar.The Paris-based energy watchdog said in January that global emissions that had dropped sharply in 2020 due to the coronavirus crisis would rebound in 2021 unless governments acted. Britain hosts a summit in Glasgow in November aimed at drawing up global goals to tackle climate change. Birol said he was optimistic the new US administration would join other major economies in committing to a net zero emissions target by mid-century.President Biden has temporarily suspended the issuing of permits for oil and gas drilling in federal acreage.load_file(“/includes-n/article_share.html”);RELATED ARTICLES IEA urges ‘grand coalition’The world must do much more to slash emissions if it is to defuse the climate change time … IEA: China to remain driving force to push up global oil demandChief of International Energy Agency (IEA) said Monday that China will continue to be a main driving force … IEA says strong oil demand growth helping market rebalanceWorld oil demand will grow more than expected this year, which will help ease a global glut, the …load_file(“/includes-n/article_most_view.html”);var wxs = (function() {return navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf(micromessenger) !== -1})();if (!wxs) {/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1214135;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();}Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disquswindow._taboola = window._taboola || [];_taboola.push({mode: thumbnails-a,container: taboola-below-article,placement: below article,target_type: mix});load_file(“/includes-n/footer.html”);load_file(“/includes-n/addthis.html”);
