The economic implications of climate change are vast. This section focuses solely on what will happen if we do nothing, and what will happen if we do something. Of course, there is a great deal in between as we work our way to a renewable future.

Within this section, you will find information on investing and divesting to facilitate a green economy.

And, on another financial note, you may well find information on sustainable products (like boxed water instead of plastic) from time to time.
