G20 Energy Ministers Clash Over Renewable Energy Targets
The G20 energy ministers are met in Goa, India and the talks have been dominated by disagreements over renewable energy targets.
The G7 countries have proposed that G20 countries triple their renewable energy capacity by 2030. However, this proposal has been opposed by some of the world's biggest fossil fuel producers, including Saudi Arabia, Russia, and China.
These countries argue that the G7's proposal is unrealistic and would put a strain on their economies. They also argue that renewable energy is not yet a reliable enough source of energy to meet the world's needs.
The disagreements over renewable energy targets are just one of the challenges facing the G20 energy ministers. They are also discussing how to deal with the rising cost of oil and gas, and how to ensure that the global energy system is more resilient to climate change.
It is unclear whether the G20 energy ministers will be able to reach an agreement on any of these issues. However, the discussions in Goa are a sign that the world is facing a growing challenge in meeting its energy needs in a sustainable way.
