It’s no secret that our way of life is under threat. Climate change is not only causing average global temperatures to soar, but also changing precipitation patterns, creating more droughts and heatwaves, contributing to sea level rises and leading to stronger, more destructive storms.
All of this spells a grave danger for our present society. Threatened by challenges such as drought and rising sea levels, millions will be forced to migrate or face worsening living conditions. The only solution is to decarbonize our economy as quickly as possible.
The main energy generation technologies we can use to do this are wind and solar, which are not only mature and established but also cheaper than anything else we have today. But the intermittency of these energy sources poses a problem for their growth.
