For this update, Tzeporah Berman, the International Program Director of Stand.Earth, calls for an agreement among countries to not further expand the use of fossil fuels.

In this post, Energy in Depth, a blog of the Independent Petroleum Association of America, takes a look at the debate over banning gas stoves. The blog argues that statistics show that the sources of fuel for cooking are not to blame for emissions, instead it is how the food is cooked, so people who care about emissions should look for changes here, rather than banning gas stoves.
