I wrote a book on How to avoid a climate disaster because i think we are at crucial moment.i’ve seen exciting progress in the more than 15 years that i have been learning about energy and climate change. The cost of renewable energy from the sun and wind has dropped dramatically . There’s more public support for taking big steps to avoid climate disaster than ever before. and governments and companies around the world are setting ambitious goals for reducing emissions.
Within a few years, I had become convinced of three things:
-To avoid a climate disaster, we have to get to zero greenhouse gas emissions.
-We need to deploy the tools we already have, like solar and wind, faster and smarter.
-And we need to create and roll out breakthrough technologies that can take us the rest of the way.
-The case for zero was, and is, rock solid. Setting a goal to only reduce our emissions—but not eliminate them—won’t do it. The only sensible goal is zero.
