Video Episode 1.0 Transcript

How do we know the climate is actually changing? How do we know that humans are the cause of that change? What are the likely costs of climate change? How does our energy system work? Where do our emissions come from? What are the costs of various climate change mitigation strategies? what policy opportunities and pitfalls might lie along the road ahead? And what technologies exist either today or that are in development that might help us change course?


Climate Now is geared toward policy makers, investors, business leaders, reporters, and really anyone who wants a deeper level understanding about the climate and a better energy system.
