Avoiding the most severe climate impacts requires keeping the vast majority of fossil fuels in the ground and replacing coal, oil and natural gas with low-carbon energy sources. An energy transition not only protects communities from the threat of climate disruption, it opens the door to new jobs in the clean energy sector. While the economy and jobs consistently rank as higher priorities for most individuals than climate disruption, the issues are intimately linked.

Unfamiliar viruses travel northward with pests whose ranges expand with warmer temperatures.
