    <p>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 <strong>today we’ve got the technology we need to ditch the dirty fossil fuels</strong> driving the crisis and the popular will to do it — all a whole lot easier and more affordably than ever before.</p>

    <p>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.</p>

    <p>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 <a href="http://24hoursofreality.org" target="_blank"><em>24 Hours of Reality: 24 Reasons for Hope.</em></a></p>

    <p><strong>It’s no longer a question of how can we stop climate change, but how soon.</strong> And we’ve got the numbers to prove it.</p>
