Gen Z, dubbed the Climate Generation, is working to change the narrative on doomsday climate news.
Mitigating the global climate crisis is still within our capabilities if we act now. We are running out of time.
Energy independence doesn’t mean more drilling for oil, it means diversifying our sources of energy and storage to maintain a reliable energy grid that is less impacted by global events.
The Winter Olympics and Paralympics in China are showcasing some green innovations in renewable energy transmission and the grid built to handle the variable energy produced by wind and solar.
The same spirit of innovation that allowed us to create our current developed world will allow us to transition to renewable energy and salvage the planet.
The growth of renewable energy, led by solar and wind, will continue into 2022. Innovation and investment will bring new products to market faster and help move the needle on mitigating climate change.
Rural communities that embrace the transition to renewables and are helped by government policies and investments will reap economic benefits while combatting climate change.
We need to reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, sequester or capture carbon, and transition to clean energy. And we need to do it now if we hope to meet the goals of the Paris Accord and keep global warming to 1.5˚C. Some changes to our climate as a result of carbon emissions are irreversible, but we can still affect the climate crisis and the economic recovery.
To combat climate change, we need to harness all of the innovative power we have at our disposal to create and refine new ideas that will become the industries of our carbon-free future.
Investment in green energy is growing, but not fast enough to meet the goals of the Paris Accord. More investment in developing economies is needed.
