                         Two challenges
• Unchecked climate change
    – Rising environmental costs (droughts,
      flooding, species loss, wildfires, hurricanes)
    – Monetary costs of inaction or delay
    – Risks to public health
    – Dependence on polluting or risky energy
      sources

• Economic downturn
    – Recessionary market
    – Increased global competition
    – Slowdown of “old economy”
    – Heavily dependence on fossil fuels
