The industrial and agricultural revolutions have profoundly transformed the world, but the unintended consequence of these revolutions is that humans are changing the climate of Earth. I will briefly describe new data on climate change, before turning to how progress in carbon-free energy can provide a low-cost path to a more sustainable world. Research in energy storage and new approaches to electrochemical production of chemical fuels will be described in the context of the remaining scientific and technology challenges that need to be overcome in the transition to clean energy solutions.
