Global Climate Change: The Pragmatist's Guide to Moving the Needle
Ivo Welch and Bradford Cornell
Climate change is transforming Earth. By the end of this century, it will likely be approximately 2℃ warmer than it is today. What can we do to help slow down global warming—to move the needle?
Ivo Welch and Bradford Cornell write that what ultimately matters is not what the world should do, but what its important decision makers will do.
The most pressing task now is the intelligent phasing out of fossil fuels. We should subsidize research in all aspects of clean energy, particularly storage. When it arrives, cheaper clean energy will displace most fossil fuels all over the world—and thus truly move the needle.
