A carbon-free future

Our reliance on carbon-based fossil fuels could be over within a decade according to a study from Benjamin Sovacool at the University of Sussex, UK. Sovacool suggests that climate change could push us towards the "next great energy revolution" in a fraction of the time that have led to substantial changes in the past. However, he warns that there are many obstacles to overcome and it will take a collaborative, interdisciplinary, multi-scalar effort to get to a carbon-free future for energy.
