“Learning” frontiers in the energy transition

How quickly we reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions critically depends on how fast we learn in the process. New research uses learning curves to explain staggering declines in costs of key climate technologies like solar photovoltaics and batteries, grounding hopes that we can get where we need to go—as long as we don’t delay getting started.

Extreme heat is deadly, expensive, inequitable, and now, more than ever, preventable

As climate change causes more extreme heat days across the globe, heat has become a critical issue for public health and city planning. Recent research illuminates why extreme heat poses even greater health and economic threats than previously thought, but also points to ways we can build effective solutions to address it.
