The recent Paris Agreement, which has the goal of avoiding a 1.5 degrees C rise in global temperature, means the governments of the 195 nations of the world agree that we are going to stop relying on fossil fuels for energy. If there is any room for debate, it is now about the time table. But the commitment to 1.5 degrees means only one thing: if we are serious about that goal, we must get off fossil fuels within a decade or two, with no procrastination or back-sliding. This talk will discuss what this will mean, for all of us.
