A clear, impactful update on climate change, with a focus on solutions, both globally and locally, that will take us to the healthy, sustainable future we need.
When it comes to the environment, we North Americans have a pretty big footprint. We consume vast Climate change is the most pressing issue of our time. Every day the science becomes clearer: greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of oil, coal and natural gas are disrupting our planet’s fundamental operating systems. And every day the symptoms – weather extremes, straining ecosystems, rising sea levels and more – become more evident. Experts warn that global emissions must be halved by 2030 if we are to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees C.
The good news: we already have all the solutions we need to reduce our emissions and solve climate change: renewable energy is getting cheaper by the day, and a flood of new and innovative technologies, from electric vehicles to grid-scale storage batteries, are bringing a cleaner, greener world within our reach.
