Could a new ‘carbon law’ halt climate change?

An international team of scientists have proposed a new “carbon law” as a roadmap for rapidly reducing carbon emissions. The carbon roadmap, modelled on Moore’s law in computing, is expected to halve emissions every decade and double green energy every five years. Moore’s law is the observation that innovation doubles the number of transistors on […]
