Most experts agree that solving the problem of climate change and/or reversing global warming will require a combination of conservation, recycling, and new technologies.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) continues to urgently call for sweeping global changes in transportation technology, energy sources that power factories, and the global economy overall. A global energy revolution will require innovation on the scale of the Industrial Revolution or the race to the moon.

In order to spur such innovations, a combination of public funding, government regulations, and private investment will be required.
