Ever since the signing of the  Paris Agreement  on climate change,  scientists ,  think tanks  and  policymakers  have been scrambling to define exactly what meeting this temperature limit will mean in policy and investment terms. A new  report  released this week by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) is the latest attempt to address this question.

The  G20  is a group of 20 major economies, including China, India, Germany, the UK and US, which  accounts  for 63% of global population and 83% of emissions. The IEA and IRENA each took a separate approach to modelling the most cost effective decarbonisation pathway, with the IEA using a so-called ...

A farmhand loads genetically modified corn seed into a planter on Bo Stone's farm in Rowland, North Carolina, April 20, 2016. (Photo: Jeremy M. Lange / The New York Times) Monsanto, one of the world's biggest pesticide and seed corporations and leading developer of genetically modified crop varieties, had a stock market value of US$66 billion in 2014.
