Pollution is killing up to 9 million people every single year across the planet. This unnatural phenomenon is responsible for one-in-6 deaths worldwide, more deadly than anything else, including natural disasters, famine, and war. Air pollution is the most serious issue: it accounted for two-thirds of all pollution-related deaths in 2015. Drinking water was second on the list.

    In the closing days of the COP23 international climate summit in Bonn, Europe is showing that it’s not all talk when it comes to pushing back the rising tides.

    “Maybe ‘dependence’ is a poor description of poor people using the ready availability of cheap energy to help lift themselves out of poverty”:

    There are few ways to understand why. First, most of the world’s clean-energy sources are used to generate electricity. But electricity forms only 25% of the world’s energy consumption.
