The importance of tackling climate change has never been clearer. But despite all the science that has accumulated over more than 30 years about its perils, planet-warming emissions continue to rise.
The good news is that climate solutions are now more accessible than ever. The cost of wind and solar power, for example, has plummeted in the last decade. Expanding existing efforts to reduce deforestation and increase energy efficiency has the potential to significantly slash emissions.
In the ongoing series, "The Big Fix," The World reports on what communities, individuals, governments and businesses are doing to cut emissions, as well as adapting to the impacts of climate change that are already being felt.
Check out more reporting on "The Big Fix" here. And tune into The World’s social channels for our monthly video series exploring climate change solutions around the globe.
