Working With the Forces of Nature
Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. Be it jobs, security, climate change, food production or increasing incomes. The global energy system is locked into a high-carbon trajectory, but there are real solutions to the climate crisis. Expanding access to clean energy while phasing out fossil fuel use is crucial to keeping the world in line with the 1.5°C target of global warming – the upper limit proposed in the Paris Agreement. A rapid shift to fossil free and renewable sources of energy is much needed. To achieve this, several measures must be taken.
