Wednesday, May 9, 2018


Costa Rica's new president took the oath of office Tuesday, vowing to turn his country into a global example of how to abolish fossil fuels and convert to clean energy sources.

At 38, Carlos Alvarado, a former labor minister in the outgoing center-left administration, is the youngest head of state in Latin America. "We have before us the titanic and beautiful task of abolishing the use of fossil fuels in our economy," Alvarado said.
