Agency published its annual report "World Energy Outlook." The paper argues that the increased use of fossil fuels could lead to irreversible changes in climate.
The paper quoted the IEA chief economist Fatih Birol as saying that the world is a technology transition to cleaner energy sources. For their implementation requires political will, according to the BBC BBC.
