Bending the Curve

Climate change is scientifically incontrovertible. What the world urgently needs now are scalable solutions for bending the curve — flattening the upward trajectory of human-caused greenhouse gas emissions and consequent global climate change.


More than 50 researchers and scholars — from a wide range of disciplines across the University of California system — formed a climate solutions group and came together in July-October 2015 to identify these solutions, many of which emerge from UC research as well as the research of colleagues around the world. Taken together, these solutions can bend the curve of climate change.
