Fast green transition will save money too

An excellent new report from Oxford shows that a rapid green #energytransition will likely save many trillions of dollars - even before accounting for climate damages and co-benefits of climate policy, such as #cleanairforall. How? Continue exponentially increasing deployment of #solar PV, #wind, #batteries, and #hydrogen electrolyzers for the next decade, just as planned in the Ontario Green Party Roadmap to Net Zero.

A slower transition will cost more and a nuclear-driven transition will cost much more. Yet more evidence that dragging our feet on #climateaction is bad for almost everyone.
