Mashup: Biting the Climate Bullet

Action to prevent catastrophic climate change is occurring along four basic pathways worldwide:

  • renewable energy for the grid,
  • electrification of transportation and industrial processes,
  • land use reform, and
  • direct air capture of carbon dioxide.

Climate change is a symptom of greenhouse gas pollution. So to prevent climate change, we do more than reduce greenhouse gas pollution. We stop the pollution at its source and remove carbon dioxide, the major portion of it, from the atmosphere.
