UN Calls for End to Energy Poverty

The UN Secretary-General called for an end to energy poverty this past week, asking for a "global action to achieve sustainable energy for all by 2030."  There are two concepts I like to focus on when thinking about ending poverty - attaining true sustainable energy, and eliminating income inequality (and/or removing money control as form of slavery).

It's about time we focused on the important stuff.

“This is the right time for this initiative. Across the world we see momentum building for concrete action that reduces energy poverty, catalyses sustainable economic growth and mitigates the risks of climate change,” said the UN Secretary-General.

You made a few fine points there. I did a search on the matter and found most people will go along with with your blog.
