While international climate negotiations inch forward, many national governments are taking steps to decouple economic growth from carbon pollution. Conservative governments in France and Italy see opportunities in moving away from fossil fuels. Australia, which exports coal and is heavily reliant on resource extraction, recently announced a goal of reducing carbon emissions 80 percent by 2050. But energy transitions are not easy or linear, and many governments are taking small steps today while kicking hard work and decisions down the road to their successors. Join us for a survey of which governments are moving ahead in the race to build a clean energy future.
