The world will remain heavily dependent on fossil fuels such as oil,
gas and coal for the rest of this century, despite the best efforts of
governments to move toward renewable energy, an energy economist said on Wednesday.
Odell, professor of international energy studies at Erasmus University,
Rotterdam, and author of the bestselling World and Oil Power, said the
drive to limit greenhouse gases was likely to be held back by both
technology and economics.
