Staying updated on the latest solutions, policy changes, and actions by our leaders to end the climate crisis isnít easy. With our planetís future at stake, itís important to be armed with the truth about our movementís progress.

Weíll keep you informed by sharing facts like:

֍ In 2000, analysts at the International Energy Agency projected the world would have 30 gigawatts of wind energy capacity installed by 2010. As it turned out, wind power clocked in at 200 gigawatts of capacity in 2010, exceeding the analystsí projections by nearly seven times. In 2016, the world exceeded the analystsí mark by over 16 times!

֍ Experts projected in 2002 that the world would install 1 gigawatt of solar power per year by 2010. That projection was beaten by nearly 17 times when 2010 rolled around. And we beat that figure 73 times over in 2016!

֍ The cost of utility-scale solar has fallen 85 percent between 2009-2016 alone.  We're getting closer to grid parity in more and more markets around the world, which means solar power increasingly costs as much as or less than electricity from fossil fuels!


Every week, we share valuable resources and facts like these to help citizens better understand how our climate is changing and the solutions that exist. We also make it easy for you to share this content with your friends and family. 

Visit our blog to stay educated and empowered on the movement for climate solutions and to learn ways to get involved. 

Get started today.
