A low carbon transition is already underway. The question is whether the transition will happen fast enough to materially mitigate dangerous climate change. There is an enormous literature on the topic, and it raises a lot of complicated and contentious topics.
For purposes of this Lite Roadmap, key Index Entries include:
- I:LowCarbonTransition (Deep Dive)
Key Topical Headings for books, reports, and journal articles:
- S - Low Carbon Transition Barriers
- S - Low Carbon Transition Planning
- S - 2020s - 2030s Pathways
- S - GHG Emissions Futures
- S - 100% Renewable Energy Transition
- S - Evaluating Transition Pathways and Progress
Key Topical Headings for news and opinion:
- N - Evaluating Low Carbon Transition Progress
- N - Business and a Low Carbon Transition
- N - 2 Degree Target
- N - 100% Renewable Future
- N - Barriers to Low Carbon Transition
- N - Low Carbon Transition Underway
Key Topical Headings for extracted materials:
- E - Electric Sector Low Carbon Pathways
- E - Emissions Pathways
- E - Comparing/Evaluating Low Carbon Studies
Key Topical Headings for websites, experts, and more:

As a bonus, here are some recent additions to the Climate Web you might find thought-provoking that relate specifically to the topic of this Lite Roadmap. They represent just the smallest sliver of what’s organized in the Climate Web with the goal of facilitating access to your actionable knowledge. Note that links with “$$” sit behind paywalls and we can’t provide direct access. But we are always working to go through those sources to extract key idea and graphics to share under “fair use” rules.

NOTE: Accessing the Climate Web via Roadmap hyperlinks can be a bit disconcerting if you’re not familiar with TheBrain software’s basic functionality, which you can explore via the Basic Navigation link at right. If you do explore some of the links, please remember that Open Access to the Climate Web (via the cloud) is both much slower and less powerful than Premium Access to the Climate Web (which allows you to download the Climate Web to your computer AND take advantage of TheBrain’s superior desktop and mobile softwares).
All of this information and much more gets pulled together into the “story” of the ongoing low carbon transition, representing hundreds of hours of research and knowledge curation. Topics you’ll find explored in the Premium Roadmap include:
- 100% Renewable energy
- 2o C emissions pathways
- 1.5o C emissions pathways
- Negative emissions as part of a low carbon transition
- Visualizing a low carbon transition
- And much more
