Climate Solutions: Reaching Net Zero Emissions

We know from the IPCC reports that the world needs to reach net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions within 30 years. But what would that look like? Is it even possible for us to completely stop emitting greenhouse gasses?
I didn’t even know the answer to that question when I started this series, despite having read fairly widely on the climate crisis. But I have become convinced that it is not unrealistic to reduce our GHG almost to zero — say by 95% or more — within that timeframe. this article is an overview of what that would look like for the United States.

ECO-nomics: Creating True Wealth by Addressing the Climate Crisis

Ever since the merchants of doubt started spending huge sums to fight against the United States dealing with global climate change, we have heard the narrative that even if it is real, dealing with it is far too expensive and would destroy our quality of life. For example, Republican lawmakers claimed that the Green New Deal, if enacted, would ban hamburgers, air travel, and ice cream.

The reality is far different. If we look back to the last two times the United States treated a situation as a true national emergency, we see that the outcomes were remarkably more positive.
