"Award Winner Makes Renewable Electricity from Jatropha Nut"

Newsletter Article, Belfer Center Newsletter

By Beth Maclin, Former Communications Assistant, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs

Kerosene lamps are an option, but they are expensive and dangerous and are used only in emergencies. Many people are left in the dark.

"If the build-up of greenhouse gases pushes the global average surface temperature past 2-2.5 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial level, the danger of intolerable and unmanageable impacts of climate change on human wellbeing becomes very high."
