In the midst of abundant scientific evidence suggesting that carbon emissions are changing our climate in ways that will damage the environment and create economic distress, public demand for a transition to a zero emission (ZE) world is placing the burden on the shoulders of governments and private businesses around the globe to address this crisis by adjusting their operations.
