5 Futures: The good, the bad, and the weird

August 24, 2021

The current issue of National Geographic describes the spectrum of 5 possible climate futures outlined in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report:

“The UN’s latest report on the state of the climate offers a stark warning that humanity’s future could be filled with apocalyptic natural disasters. But that future isn’t set in stone. Depending on global economic trends, technological progress, geopolitical developments, and most important, how aggressively we act to reduce carbon emissions, the world at the end of the 21st century could turn out to be radically different. Or not.”

“Or not.” 

Let’s act aggressively, beginning right here in Washington state, with smart implementation of the cap-and-invest Climate Commitment Act.

If you haven’t already registered, please put this on your calendar: Wednesday, September 8, from 2 to 3 p.m. PT, we’ll host a discussion with the Department of Ecology and Office of Governor Jay Inslee on the Roadmap to Cap & Invest Implementation. We invite you to participate with us in continuing to shape this best-in-the-nation law.

If you have registered, please invite any of your colleagues who may be interested in participating. Please share this link with your network.
