Green future for Africa is a distant dream

Green future for Africa is a distant dream

The fossil fuels are the enemies of the modern world. Even the inventor of the light bulb Thomas Edison said that electric light should be so cheap that only rich can afford to burn candles. The majority of domestic energy needs in the developing world are fulfilled by fossil fuel. The electricity penetration is lowest in the continent of Africa, one of the least developed regions in the world. This forces around 621 million people there to go for fossil fuels. 
The population without an access to electricity is also increasing day by day.  The African countries are traditionally known to be rich in the natural resources but failed to utilize them for own development. The country like Nigeria exports crude oil on large scale but its own citizens heavily rely on firewood and charcoal. The per capita use of electricity in Mali is lowest. These pathetic figures question the twenty first century vision of green future. If we go by the latest researches there is no way that Africa is going to achieve global energy targets by 2030 deadline. 
The fossil fuel free economy will be a distant dream for Africa, the continent which needs it most. There are other hurdles such as droughts, health epidemics and illiteracy in this staff. Firewood, coal and dung released toxins on massive scale which kill 600,000 in Africa. Considering such high human costs of the fossil fuel, the green vision for Africa should be quickly implemented. The lung diseases due to green house gases are burdening already inefficient public health system in the Africa.
