Driven by the need to avert catastrophic climate change and by the depletion of easily ...

  • PLAN B 3.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization

    Experts were “stunned” this past summer by the loss of Arctic sea ice. An area almost twice the size of Britain disappeared in a single week.The Greenland ice cap is melting so fast that it is triggering minor earthquakes as pieces of ice weighing several billion tons break off the ice sheet and slide into the sea. The West Antarctic ...

  • Worldwatch Report: Renewable Revolution: Low-Carbon Energy by 2030

    SummaryHumanity can prevent catastrophic climate change if we act now and adopt policies that reduce energy usage by unleashing the full potential of energy efficiency in concert with renewable energy resources. However, this goal is not likely to be achieved if our only measure of success is emissions reductions; climate change is fundamentally a ...

  • Cleaner Power: The Benefits and Costs of Moving from Coal Generation to Modern Technologies Report

    This paper analyzes benefits and costs of reducing by half the use of coal for electric generation in the United States by the year 2010, making use of the Haiku electricity market model developed and maintained at Resources for the Future. The analysis indicates that the coal generation would be replaced by generation from modern power ...

  • Powering China’s Development: The Role of Renewable Energy

    SummaryChina’s need for secure, affordable, and environmentally sustainable energy for its 1.3 billion people is palpable.
