If we in the developed world are still addicted to fossil, how can we expect the use of fossil to decrease quickly in developing nations?
The direct emissions reductions Walmart has promised to make will prevent tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere over the
Like the grains of sand in an hour glass, 400 grains now sit at the bottom of the glass while just five grains remain at the top. The Earth's 400 ppm of atmospheric CO2 is a stark reminder of how little time we have left to act on climate and end our dependency on fossil fuels.
