It is our view that the only way to achieve the 1.5 degrees Celsius goal is to compress the time from invention to adoption for breakthrough technologies.

In the same way that we compressed the development of a vaccine from 12 years to 18 months, climate solutions must reach the market much faster as illustrated in this simple graphic.

Coordination among scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and policymakers can make this a reality.

The opportunity is to orchestrate entrepreneurial and scientific talent and assemble the financial and technical resources such that the best ideas can scale rapidly.

The Climate Project, and its climate platform website fosters communications to advance the best ideas that can lead to solutions and efficient progress.

The goals of the Paris Agreement are daunting but achievable if those with innovation, talent and resources collaborate.
