One of the most important things we can do in order to address climate change is decarbonize our electricity grid. As much as 25-33% of our emissions come from electricity and that is only going to increase as the world becomes more and more electric – from transportation to data centers to currency.
While there are plenty of zero-carbon sources to cover our power needs – wind, solar, hydro, nuclear – the transition is difficult and needs more policy to push it forward.
So today on Animalia we are sitting down with Dylan Leazes to discuss. Dylan works in Congress and spends a large chunk of his time on Energy Policy. He’s just the fella to talk with about how best we can accelerate this work.
