This news is from Friday, but we want to make sure you got it because it’s very important and good.

Previously CO2 emissions only decreased during substantial economic downturns. IEA explains the breakthrough by China increasingly shifting to renewables while OECD countries adding more renewable energy combined with more energy efficiency.
