UN for intensified efforts to promote renewable energy sources (Delhi, India)

In a report made public yesterday, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan observed that accelerated development and increased use of new and renewable energy sources can offer multiple benefits for sustainable development.

"Renewable sources of energy can be used to provide modern energy services to the poor, contribute to meeting the increasing global energy demand, reduce air pollution, mitigate climate change and delay the eventual fossil-fuel depletion," he said.

Well, I guess we're not the only ones that are aware of peak oil. Why doesn't the moral majority of the U.S. know? (sarcasm)
