The small victories add up. According to Climate Progress, renewables recently edged fossils in new power plant investments.
"Electricity from the wind, sun, waves and biomass drew $187 billion last year compared with $157 billion for natural gas, oil and coal, according to calculations by Bloomberg New Energy Finance using the latest data. Accelerating installations of solar- and wind-power plants led to lower equipment prices, making clean energy more competitive with coal."
The sooner we get off carbon, the better.
