We are at a critical moment.

once again to deal with climate change. The Conference Of the Parties 21st Meeting (COP21) seeks a new international agreement on the climate, applicable
to all nations, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2oC by

For over 25 years, GENI has driven the strategy to link renewable energy resources around the world – the highest priority
objective of the World Game™ simulation. The high-voltage
interconnection between nations tapping abundant renewable energy development is
an engineering strategy that's doable everywhere - now.
Negotiating CO2 reductions country by country is
hard. Building and connecting renewables is a positive solution that deserves
your highest priority action.
We have sent GENI's "Open Letter To
Climate Change Experts And Negotiators." We make a strong case to stop new
fossil fuel development and instead, build and connect renewable infrastructure.
GENI's Fossil Fuels vs. Renewables Infographic explains the benefits to each nation. Tell your leaders,
media and colleagues that this is urgent and important.
