Great post Pablo. I've also been working to fight climate change. Trying to mobilise the tech community around the issue with techimpactmakers.com

Thanks Steven. Glad you found the post to be positive. I have joined techimpactmakers, looks interesting.

I took a look at climatechoice.co/, and the header states "We must cut global emissions in half by 2030".. I thought that the IPCC Oct. 2018 report said we had to completely eliminate carbon emissions by 2030 to avoid the gravest of consequences. Am I mistaken?

I hadn't seen that report. It was based on what I'd heard in the Uninhabitable Earth book. Will look into it again, cheers for pointing that out!
