We have seen many changes since opening our doors in 2008. We went from people just beginning to hear about climate change and the many questions that followed: Do humans play a role in climate change? Is there was anything we could do to change it, and if so would it hurt the economy?
Eight years later, 155 nations plan to sign the Paris climate agreement this Friday on Earth Day. A record number of nations are pledging to take steps to reduce global warming pollutants.
Not only that, according to the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) preliminary analysis of 2015 data, for the second year in a row, the amount of carbon emitted from the world’s power sector stayed level at 32.1 billion tons and renewables “accounted for roughly 90 percent of new electricity generation in 2015,” with wind alone producing more than half of that new power.
At the same time, the global economy grew more than 3 percent. The IEA declared that the “decoupling of global emissions and economic growth” has been officially “confirmed.”
