In the last decade, there has been rapid wind and solar energy growth, which could help to limit global warming to only 1.5℃. 2021 saw solar polar grow by 23% globally and wind power grow by 14%. To remain under the 1.5℃ threshold, the world would need to continue this trend, where wind and solar supply 40% of the world’s power by 2030, and 70% by 2050. Globally, we still need to increase efforts to reduce carbon emissions, but by beginning to rely on suitable alternatives for energy, we are on our way to reducing global warming and that is something to celebrate.
