The Good News: Climate Change Doesn’t Matter Anymore

My provocative title represents the increasing awareness that we don’t need to believe in climate change to do the right thing when it comes to energy. Of course, climate change is a real threat to us and our environment. But there are many highly valid reasons to become more energy efficient, conserve energy through behavior change, and transition to renewables – entirely independent of climate change concerns.
