If the only news you hear about climate change are headlines about rising temperatures and extreme weather, you could be forgiven for thinking we’re stuck with a bad situation. But here’s the thing: the challenge is urgent but today we’ve got the technology we need to ditch the dirty fossil fuels driving the crisis and the popular will to do it — all a whole lot easier and more affordably than ever before.
What this means is that these days, you don’t need to look into a crystal ball to see a sustainable future taking shape. You just need to look out your window.
So we’re counting down the key 24 developments we’re seeing in areas like clean energy, community action, and international negotiations, with highlights from this year’s 24 Hours of Reality: 24 Reasons for Hope.
It’s no longer a question of how can we stop climate change, but how soon. And we’ve got the numbers to prove it.
- Renewable energy is growing in use
- The future of clean energy is looking up
- Remarkable progress is being made in energy storage
- The electric grid is evolving
- The electric vehicle industry and market are booming
- Transportation is getting more efficient and public transit is growing
