How much progress have we made in combatting climate change since COP 21 in 2015? More than you might think.
The IEA-OES has released a roadmap on how the world's leading nations can develop 300 GW of ocean energy by 2050 – creating 680,000 jobs and removing over 500 million tonnes of carbon emissions in the process.
