Talking about the climate crisis can feel overwhelming and disheartening. We hear about what kinds of disasters are in store for us in the future and how much we still need companies and governments to take action, even though they’ve known about this issue for decades and haven’t yet eliminated our dependence on fossil fuels. But there are still reasons to hope. Despite all the challenges they’ve faced, scientists, inventors, and entrepreneurs have come up with ways to reduce our carbon footprints, move to renewables, and redesign how we live. To round out our Climate Change Survival Plan package this week, read our list of reasons to hope, a collection of some of those ideas, companies, and people that could help save our planet, here.
