By 2030, U.S. will slash its carbon pollution 50 to 52 % compared with 2005
Since 1751 the world has emitted over 1.5 trillion tonnes of CO2. To reach our climate goal of limiting average temperature rise to 2°C, the world needs to urgently reduce emissions. One common argument is that those countries which have added most to the CO2 in our atmosphere – contributing most to the problem today – should take on the greatest […]

Air pollution, like a pandemic, kills millions every year
Globally, air pollution accounts for about 7 million premature deaths a year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO)—more than twice as many as alcohol consumption and more than five times as many as traffic accidents.

Have you heard about the Reicher triangle?
Named after Dan Reicher, Stanford researcher and former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Energy, the theory goes that in order to rapidly deploy clean energy, you need three elements: technology; policy; and finance.
When these components are integrated, we’re able to thoughtfully accelerate the speed and scale of clean technologies. The technology is there and is getting better. […]
