全球风能日敦促G8 领导停止化石燃料补贴转向支持可再生能源

Global Wind Day urges G8 leaders to stop subsidising fossil fuels and switch to renewables


“当全球领袖们口头承诺应对气候变化的时候,他们实际的做法确是在以110美元/吨的价格对二氧化碳的排放进行补贴,化石燃料的补贴将使我们在保护气候的路上越行越远,”全球风能理事会秘书长Steve Sawyer说。


在全球各个市场的民意调查显示,风电广泛地被民众接受,这也成为传递给政策制定者的一个重要信号。根据Eurobarometer的民意调查,89%的欧洲公民支持风电,而仅有43%和36%的民众支持火电和核电。2012年美国的民意调查显示,71%的美国人希望更多的风电发站, 而在加拿大渥太华78%的民众认为风电是最安全的发电方式。而英国的调查显示,2/3的民众支持风电发展。

全球风能日为公众提供了一个了解风电的机会,也让公众了解到风电是应对目前的全球能源危机的有些解决方案之一。6月15日是第五届全球风能日,全球各地将有上百个庆祝活动在各地展开。今年通过Facebook,Twitter和电子邮件,人们可以告诉G8 领导人停止补贴化石燃料,转而支持可再生能源。 参加全球风能日活动,请点击
