Theories and data of existing problem
According to (http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=electricity-gap-developing-countries-energy-wood-charcoal) 130 years ago Thomas Edison had created an artificial light to be used for the humanities sake, but there is still one quarter of the world’s population or 1.5 Billion people (mostly on Africa and South Asia) that lacks on electricity despite of other nations that is continuing to grow in terms of technology and electricity like USA and China. Because this nations that lack on electricity still don’t have access on modern fuels like natural gas, kerosene and etc. Instead they are using charcoal and woods that causes pollution and health problems. Researchers are recommending these Nations to switch to more efficient energy for their own health. Some of the people think that this 1.5 billion people without electricity is a good thing because this will lessen the possibility releasing heat trapping gases that will soon cause Global Warming.
