On April 9, Asian Development Bank released its publication, Asian Development Outlook 2013, which contained a chapter on the connection between the economy, energy, and the environment in Asia. The report said that rapidly growing countries are using environmentally-dangerous energy policies to spur development. By 2035, the continent could account for more than half of the world’s energy, and the report warns that carbon dioxide emissions will double if Asia stays on this trajectory without addressing environmental concerns. Coal, gas, and oil are the major energy sources; these sources are expected to remain Asia’s main energy supply unless the clean energy market is developed. The study recommends adding more energy sources to the mix to stimulate the economy.
