Importance Of Saving The Planet
Without action, the US will face increasing costs of climate damages. Fortunately, many great measures are being implemented. The priorities are to use energy more efficiently and manage natural resources better. Studies show that climate action will reduce projected global warming by nearly half over the next three decades.
Luckily, many of the necessary technologies exist already. The real challenge is to apply them. For instance, renewable energy generation and transfer are becoming affordable with the discovery of new fossil fuels, even without subsidies. Such a “renewable electricity boom” could also stimulate the national as well as local economies.
