African nations share a common situation in that they pollute little in terms of CO2s globally speaking, but at the same
time global warming may have terrible consequences for the continent, set to face a sharp population increase. They have now
access to few energy resources, which is conducive to their poverty. New renewables belong to the future (solar, wind, geothermal),
whereas old renewables – wood coal – are a thing of the past. The coal or oil and gas dependent giants must start energy
transformation, as must the many countries relying upon traditional biomass. The use of wood coal is simply too large for the
survival of the African forest. Under the COP21, African countries have right to financial assistance, especially for more
electricity to connect its rural and also many urban people to heating, air-conditioning and the electronic high ways. Without the
COP21 promises, decarbonisation will be impossible in Africa, and thus its large need for more energy will lead to more CO2:s
