Paris Climate Accord: A Beacon of Hope

The Paris Climate Accord acknowledges that the threat of climate change is "urgent and potentially irreversible," and can only be addressed with deep reductions in oil, gas and coal use. A large global investment in new technologies such as safe fusion nuclear power will be necessary to meet the demands of climate change and to alter the operational behavior of the power grid, transportation, and manufacturing.
