Original Text

As you can see, there's a mind-blowing gap between the energy haves and the energy have-nots. And across the globe, we have incredible energy inequality. Billions of people simply lack enough energy to build a better life: affordable, abundant and reliable energy to run their businesses without daily blackouts, to preserve their crops from rotting, to power lifesaving medical equipment, to work from home and do Zoom calls with their colleagues, to run trains and factories, basically, to grow and to prosper and to access both dignity and opportunity. Rich countries have that kind of energy, whereas most countries in Africa, and many elsewhere simply don't. And those billions of people are falling further and further behind the rest of the world.
