A slow energy transition

In the last decades, we’ve seen a constant and substantial growth of the global production system. However, economic expansion has come at a price: the exponential rise in emission levels and their impact on climate change.

Human activities have increased the concentration of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, amplifying Earth’s natural greenhouse effect. The annual rate of increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide over the past 60 years is about 100 times faster than previous natural increases, such as those that occurred at the end of the last ice age 11,000–17,000 years ago.

Despite the fact that pollution levels keep progressively increasing, it's important to note that we are still in time to make key changes to keep global warming under 1.5°C [IPCC] and avoid irreversible climate changes that will condemn humanity to live on a hostile planet. The Climate Clock initiative shows us that, at the current rate of emissions, we have approximately 7 years before the carbon budget* runs out, the Climate Clock reaches zero and we overturn the 1.5°C irreversible average temperature increase.

The current decisions that we make will heavily influence the life of the next generations, so it is our responsibility to act immediately. At the moment, humanity excessively relies on fossil fuels, all the while there are not enough existing infrastructures in place for the adoption of sustainable energy on a grand scale, even when it has been proven crucial for humanity's existence and well-being. A fast Energy Transition from fossil fuels to sustainable energy is the only option that we have to survive and guarantee a bright future for future generations.

So, what is the problem?

We believe that people feel like they don’t have a voice or place in the conversation about Energy Transition, rendering them powerless and unmotivated. Even if people recognize the devastating effects of air pollution on the environment, it feels like there’s no way for them to engage in this fight for our survival.
