Climate Week NYC, an annual summit that takes place alongside the UN General Assembly kicked off this week, with an important theme: “We Can. We Will.”
For several years, scientists, associations and businesses have been stating that the technologies to bend the curve on global emissions and global warming are available. This year’s weather anomalies have shown more clearly than ever the stark reality of climate change. “We Can. We Will.” is an urgent call to focus on solutions and actions rather than problems and complexities.
While greenhouse gas reduction targets and regulatory frameworks are set at global and national levels, the transition to energy efficiency can take root at the state and municipal levels.
