The pledge to achieve net zero by 2050 is a global race against time and it is one that we must win in order to safeguard the future of planet Earth. It is essential that we are aware of the obstacles we will face in our path to net zero. In this pathway, Keith Mullin covers some of the key challenges such as funding needed for the transition and other non-financial barriers including our lifestyle. He then explains why voluntary action will not be enough. We will need a big push from governments globally. More importantly, we need global coordination on stronger climate policies and taxes.

In this video, Keith will be making some observations about the impediments to hitting net-zero targets. Specifically, where is the money going to come from to finance climate goals? Is our reluctance to fundamentally change the ways we live our lives, particularly in the affluent West, a roadblock? And is insufficient government action the major hurdle?

The time for voluntary action may be reaching its end. It's time for governments to consider a system of climate levies and taxes. And there needs to be better policy coordination at a global level. In this video, Keith talks about what governments can do to push us down the right path.
