Even as the administration in Washington ignores the dangers of climate change, we have reasons to hope.
To stop the rise of climate pollution – while growing the economy – we've zeroed in on solutions with the biggest impact.
Why: Outdated policies governing electric utilities don't fairly value clean energy, and polluters have had free license to pollute.
Why: We'll slow the pace of climate change if we cut carbon dioxide and potent short-acting gases like methane.
How: We're targeting key states to pass methane standards, and making the case for fixing methane leaks across the supply chain.
Why: China is now the world's top emitter of climate pollution.
How: We're working with China's government on market-based solutions to cut emissions.
Why: Deforestation and fertilizer pollution are major contributors to climate change.
How: We're advancing economic concepts and market mechanisms that help increase the value of rainforests and sustainable agriculture.
