The World Economic Forum (WEF) declared that the greatest risk on the global economy is ‘global warming and climate change' in the Global Risks Report 2020. Floods, droughts, desertification, loss of animal and plant species caused by climate change and eventually early human deaths due to air pollution are regressing the current socioeconomic status of countries besides eroding resources devoted to economic development. While advanced industrial countries which responsible for the climate change are reducing their carbon emissions dramatically, newly industrializing countries, including Turkey, are increasing the amount of carbon they release into the atmosphere. Turkey, having signed the agreement aiming at global warming fight together with other 195 countries at the 2015 UN Paris on Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP21), should make urgent fundamental changes in energy policy. In this context, Turkey ought to focus on renewable energy sources like the sun and mainly wind.
