In the fall, I was invited to attend a breakfast on Zoom with Fresh Energy. One of the speakers talked about a book called “Speed & Scale” – an interesting read on climate change (and no, this blog post doesn’t have anything to do with the harp!).
It is a compelling book with practical actions, global ambitions and economic investments that are needed to avert climate catastrophe. The main focus is a 10-step plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050 – the global goal we need to reach to ensure a livable Earth for generations to come. From electrifying our energy grid to fixing our global food supply chain to capturing carbon from the air, “Speed & Scale” contains practical solutions for policymakers, entrepreneurs and consumers.
The author suggests as we confront the urgent climate crisis, we will also experience the greatest economic opportunity of our lifetimes. Whether you’re a climate scientist or someone striving to make a difference in your local community, this book will help you to activate the sustainable solutions the world urgently and desperately needs. Available in your local bookstores or on Amazon.
