    Crude turns lower on profit-taking, supported by demand hopes
    Reuters via CNBC
    Crude halted a two day rally on Tuesday, shrugging off some positive signals as traders took profits following strong gains on Monday. Brent futures closed at $109.99 on Monday, the highest close in nearly two weeks, due in part to positive economic data from China and the United States, the world's two largest energy consumers. But momentum stalled on Tuesday as Brent balked above the key $110 mark, traders said.

    IEA: World not moving fast enough on renewable energy
    The Guardian
    The world is not moving fast enough on investment in low carbon energy to tackle climate change, new research from the International Energy Agency has found. About $1.6 trillion is invested annually in the global energy supply, but while that represents a doubling of investment since the turn of the century, the amount needs to rise to $2 trillion if the world is to limit global warming to no more than 2C of temperature rises, the energy thinktank said.
