This video, appropriately titled "Last Hours", makes a powerful case that climate change is an existential threat to our planet, and that we need to get off of fossil fuels ASAP. What to replace those fossil fuels with is clear: energy efficiency, wind and solar power, geothermal energy, etc. Fortunately, many of these alternatives have seen enormous technological improvements, cost reductions, and economic competitiveness (with costly, polluting, and heavily subsidized fossil fuels) in recent years. Even better, these trends are almost certain to continue. That's crucial, because the faster we switch off of carbon-based energy, the less likely the disaster scenario portrayed in this video will be to take place.
