What's it about?

One of the biggest questions of the climate change crisis is how to produce energy. Burning fossil fuels—like oil or coal—release huge amounts of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, driving global warming. Instead we're left wondering if we should we switch to renewable energy sources, or invest in more nuclear plants. In these Blinks, you’ll learn what energy really is, why it's so important that we produce it sustainably, and which of the current and future methods of doing it are more and less environmentally friendly.
