Catalyst 300 – Climate Change

Challenge: Climate Change Mitigation

The most recent IPCC report calls to address causes of anthropogenic climate change within the next three decades. United States, Canada, and the European Union as well as rapidly developing countries with high populations such as India and China produce the majority of greenhouse gas emissions while 13% of world’s population does not have a reliable access to power. New, innovative ways of lowering emissions, withdrawal of carbon from the atmosphere, and renewable energy production will be necessary. This challenge therefore calls for strategies to address climate change in the context of global energy resources.
