In this article the author relates his perspectives regarding the need for the reduction in the global carbon dioxide emissions for the next 20 years through the 80-20 challenge. He states that meeting the challenge will demand enormous change in the kinds of energy they use, and the ways they move people worldwide. He pointed out that they are just starting to face the challenge, and all things that has occurred in addressing the issue is small in comparison to what it coming.
