We have the technology now we need the will.

Reducing our emissions is the most important work of our century. People, animals, and habitat all over the world are already struggeling with the effects of climate change and we have just 387 ppm carbon in the atmosphere. 350 ppm is the safe upper limit of carbon in the atmosphere. We all have some work to do.

Three ways to reduce emissions -
Conserve - Use less
Efficiency - Finding more efficient ways to deliver and use energy
New Technology and Decarbonization - Continuing to develop new clean technologies that are more efficient and sustainable.

Fossil fuels are bankrupting our system. The external expenses of habitat loss, health care costs, species loss, water
degredation, drought and climate change are putting strains on populations and economies around the world.
