Why Renewables?

To mitigate the impacts of climate change, we have to reduce our emissions of carbon dioxide by as much as 80% from what they might be otherwise. Since electricity generation is the single largest source of carbon dioxide emissions, increasing the percentage of electricity generated with low-carbon renewable resources such as wind, solar and geothermal is one of the strategies that can help us reach this target. The following links briefly explain the science of climate change, where our energy comes from today, why we need to make reduction in emissions, what the problems with renewable sources are and how these problems can be solved.
