На завершающей неделе климатической конференции ООН в Варшаве прошла презентация экспертных материалов по проблемам и решениям в области климата и энергетики для обеспечения устойчивого развития России. Ущерб российской экономике от последствий изменения климата может составить до 0,7 трлн долларов в год. А действия в области энергоэффективности должны дать реальную альтернативу созданию новых грязных электростанций, вредящих природе и климату.
