Since the 1960s, we have been confronting, with increasing urgency, our duty to conduct ourselves as responsible stewards of nature. Now, the systems that sustain life are under unprecedented threat. The IPCC has warned in three comprehensive science reports since August that our window of opportunity is closing for a successful effort to counter and […]Read more "The Time is Now"
It was on this day 120 years ago that Max Planck first shared his quantum theory. As a result, the future of physics, technological innovation, communications, and information-sharing, were fundamentally altered. We are now moving into an age when energy, technology, and our application of science to sustainable human development, will align more closely with […]Read more "Smart Money, Business & Tech will align with Paris"
The electrified future is arriving quickly, and putting down roots. Electric vehicle technology—including better batteries and faster charging, but also on-board information technology making both energy management and vehicle management smarter and safer—is rapidly advancing. EV infrastructure is spreading. COVID recovery funds will likely mobilize the largest ever new round of investment in electrified transport. […]Read more "G-Wave Superconductor Discovery Brings Electrified Hyper-Convergence Closer to Reality"
The future of energy is being shaped by many converging forces, among them: Fast-moving multifaceted innovation; The geophysical and human health need for clean energy; Sustained and expanding growth-potential for low-carbon investments; Urban planning, energy-efficient building, and utility reform; Financial innovation, including integration of Earth science insights; The COVID-19 pandemic disruption. The COVID-19 pandemic emergency […]Read more "Energy Must Be Adaptive, Agile, Accessible & Pollution-Free"
The Paris Agreement establishes a foundation for responsible collaboration among nations, to achieve the speed and scale of innovation needed to avoid climate disaster. This is no small thing: Before 2015, no such detailed planet-wide collaborative process had ever been conceived, much less agreed. Then 193 nations agreed to pursue the Sustainable Development Goals and […]Read more "Paris Agreement withdrawal is senseless & wasteful"
The climate emergency is rapidly intensifying, with temperature rise and climate disruption impacts compounding each other, putting entire national economies at risk. The structural threats to mainstream institutions is real, and getting worse. The insurance sector is facing the possibility its business model will no longer be viable, as virtually every person and institution is […]Read more "There is No Safe Way to Profit from Ignoring Climate Science"
Mike Bloomberg is launching a campaign “to begin moving America as quickly as possible away from oil and gas and toward a 100 percent clean energy economy.”Read more "Beyond Carbon"
There is a new central organizing principle for trade, peace and security, industrial production, economic development, finance, food supply, energy, and advanced science. In December 2015 in Paris, at the COP21 (the 21st annual negotiation of the Parties to the 1992 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change—which mandates that we avoid dangerous human-caused climate disruption), […]Read more "IPCC: Warming above 1.5ºC unacceptable"
