“Dutch Trains become 100 Percent Powered by Wind Energy”

"The national railway company, NS, said that its renewables target had been met a year earlier than planned." More projects such as these must continue to meet targets on or ahead of schedule - this is all part of making HASTE!

“Gov. Cuomo calls for America’s largest offshore wind farm, proposes 2.4GW by 2030”

"New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, for example, has just called on the Long Island Power Authority to approve a 90 megawatt offshore wind project 30 miles southeast of Montauk (out of sight of the Long Island beachfront), and he's also proposing a commitment to an impressive 2.4 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030." More projects such as this will be necessary in our effort to reach a sustainable society.

“Wind and Solar Growth Outpace Gas”

"More than half of electricity generation capacity added to the U.S. grid in 2016 came from renewable resources." Actions such as these are important to obtaining sustainability, but they will have to be more rapid in order to mitigate disaster. This is why we must make HASTE!

“Short-lived greenhouse gases cause centuries of sea-level rise “

"It’s important to understand how long climate changes will last, and how much more sea-level rise is already locked in.” Even if we take drastic actions, we're still going to be paying the price for not making them sooner. This is why we must make HASTE!

“Women bear the brunt of climate-forced migration”

"The feminisation of environmental migration is already underway in South Asia but governments are slow to recognise the role of climate change and there’s no policy action."

“Economics: The Next Frontier in Conservation Science”

"Externalities are by-products of economic activity that impact other parties without being reflected in the cost of the goods or services involved." The environmental impacts of production are usually externalities. In order to move towards a sustainable future, environmental impacts must be taken into account during production, sale, and consumption.

“U.S. Crop Harvests Could Suffer with Climate Change”

As a result of climate change, "future harvests of wheat, soybeans and corn could drop by 22 to 49 percent, mostly due to water stress." Food shortages would cause massive problems for the human population. Just another reason why we need to make HASTE!

“NASA, NOAA data show 2016 warmest year on record globally”

"Earth’s 2016 surface temperatures were the warmest since modern recordkeeping began in 1880, according to independent analyses by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)." Just another reason why we must make HASTE!

“‘A cat in hell’s chance’ – why we’re losing the battle to keep global warming below 2C”

"A global rise in temperature of just 2C would be enough to threaten life as we know it. But leading climate scientists think even this universally agreed target will be missed. Could dramatic action help?"
