A Pivotal Moment

We are fortunate participants in a defining chapter of global history. Around the world, attitudes are shifting and efforts aligning into a cohesive conviction capable of advancing tremendous change. Possibilities become probabilities, ever more likely to thrive and flourish. As the balance tips, acceleration inevitably occurs and instead of “Can we do it?” the question becomes “How far and how fast will we go?”

Together we’ve been laying the groundwork for many years, and 2015 was a pivotal moment, with significant victories like the President’s rejection of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and the historic agreement reached by 195 countries at the climate conference in Paris to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions through country commitments. Those country commitments, while meaningful, are insufficient given the magnitude of the challenge.

There still is much work to do. Science tells us that we have to go further and faster. Our objective now is to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy as quickly as possible, and to do so in a just, fair, and inclusive way.
