Investing in Affordable and Clean Energy
The scientific community agrees that the earth is getting warmer and we are seeing more dramatic climate events because of this.1 However, the extent that humans are inducing global climate change is still being debated. Although there is still debate about how much humans contribute to global climate change, there is no doubt that we are more aware of our environmental footprint than before.
In 2012, the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development created 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that are aimed to meet environmental, political, and economic challenges. A number of these goals focus on climate change and developing a way to provide cleaner renewable sources of energy to every person in the world. By giving universal access to renewable energy, not only does it reduce our carbon footprint, but it also gives those who otherwise would not have modern energy services a higher standard of living.
