The KEY POINT to take on Climate Change

LOSING EARTH

The New York Times recently published ‘Losing Earth’ about a generally consented global climate treaty that failed in the Netherlands in 1989, followed by denialism and 30 years of inaction.

 

CLIMATE CHANGE IS HERE 

Today, climate change is here, everybody can see it. Everybody can feel it. Just look at over 7,000 temperature records in 2018 alone, and future predictions are ever more dire – we are on the road to He…, to HeatAge and Hell for many:

 

DROWNING MIAMI 

If we don’t change within the next 10 years, we will have reached a 1.5 degrees hotter climate, the tipping point for MIAMI. 

And you can see it today! Sunny day flooding refers to flooding without a storm, just because of the already higher sea level. The New York Times recently documented a ‘Sharp increase in sunny day flooding’ along the East Coast. While only a few days of flooding occur in low lying areas of New York and Boston, MIAMI already sees 10 days of flooding per year, compared to almost nothing twenty years ago. Atlantic City suffers flooding for already 30 days, topped by Wilmington, NC with 80 (!) days of sunny day flooding. And at some point the water will stay, drowning MIAMI which is anticipated to happen within the lifetime of Millennials under 40 years of age today. 

And, MIAMI tops everyone else with assets at risk by 2070. While Tokio and Shanghai have $500 billion at risk, New York is on the list for $2 trillion, but leading the world is MIAMI. $3.5 trillion at risk, let alone the humanitarian crisis.

 

MORALS HAVE FAILED US

Morals have been on the forefront for action. However, in the past 30 years, it is only California and a few others that passed the ‘Global Warming Solutions Act’ under Governor Schwarzenegger in 2006 further developing into the recent SB100 Act that requires a zero emission state by 2045, achieving the Paris agreement pledge for a zero emission world by 2045. 

But again, it is only California and a few others, that act on moral grounds – however dire these may be. 30 years of inaction and ever rising carbon emissions speak a pretty clear language: We are failing our morals. We are failing our kids, big time. Call it however you want - carbon emissions are still rising every year!

 

What can we do? Perhaps we need a different approach. And we need it fast. And we have it!

Winning Earth’ is our response to the New York Times about what HAS changed in the past 30 years, and that is truly remarkable, we have cheap renewable energy now. And this is so important, we have economics at our back now! 100% cheap renewables is the KEY POINT, the KEY to make Paris work. Regardless of denialism, renewables will happen anyways now, because they are the smarter choice. Listen, denialism died the day renewables got cheaper! It is not relevant anymore. Even the Kentucky Coal Museum just installed a solar rooftop to save $10,000 on their electric bill every year. 

Now with the KEY POINT resolved, how can we go faster to actually change climate change? To not fail our kids within the next 10 years?

 

Well, we thought about it and came up with a recent WHITE PAPER, identifying 3 KEY MISSING ELEMENTS:

 

  1. TALK ABOUT 100% cheap renewables!

We need the press and influencers and everybody to TALK ABOUT it.

If everybody knew how cheap renewables are, everybody would do it!

  1. CHOICES. We all know the labels for organic and non-GMO, but do we have a label for carbon free, zero emission products made with 100% renewable energy? We have it. The new zero-footprint label gives consumers choices. And money talks, let’s go for choicezero, for zero-footprint products!
  2. POP STARS and CELEBRITIES to come in and create a new zero emissions culture for a new lifestyle, for zero-footprint products, for the KEY POINT - 100% cheap renewables, for the future of zero emission people – people who care! 

 

And again, it is very easy to solve the upcoming climate crisis – just TALK ABOUT 100% cheap renewables and DO IT, go zero! Go zero-footprint!

 

And that’s the world we have in mind!*
