History predicts that fossil fuel consumption will continue to grow without aggressive efforts to price carbon and improve clean energy technologies.

On the heels of a historic climate agreement in Paris, a new study in the Journal of Economic Perspectives sheds light on the world’s ability to stop using fossil fuels. Its conclusion: fossil fuel consumption is likely to continue to grow without clear and decisive global actions to put an adequate price on carbon dioxide emissions and increase research and development spending toward clean energy technologies.
