Climate Solutions: It's time to focus on what works

I came across a fantastic piece from Climate Futurist and Forbes contributor, Michael Barnard (thanks for sharing Graeme Cooper) and it really hit home. If we are to truly stand a chance at achieving net zero, we really need to start focusing our attention, energy, efforts and investment on the solutions that work. 

Those technologies that are proven, scalable and viable in every country should be pulling in the big bucks from investors and should be at the forefront of every government's net zero strategy and approach. In case you are wondering, I am talking solar, wind,  storage, and electrification (of everything). 

Those that are unproven and unfeasible globally should, as this article states be ignored. Many of them would fall into the category of ‘zombie technologies’, a term I first heard back in 2019 from the brilliant James Carter. Sadly however, whilst good solutions usually win out in the end, bad ideas, as we are seeing today continue to attract obscene amounts of funding which eventually and inevitably end up being poured down the drain. 

Thankfully, At Hyperion Executive Search we are fortunate to work with some of the world's most exciting and impactful companies to hire the great talents responsible for leading, designing, developing and deploying some of the most innovative and exciting, proven, viable and scalable climate solutions globally. If you would like to learn more about the work we do across the global cleantech sector, please get in touch with myself or a member of the team. 


There are powerful and well-funded organizations and individuals attempting to bend our decarbonization journey to their ineffective technologies. They are slowing progress. They are working to create profits for themself at the expense of the planet. Many individuals are well meaning, but simply deluded about the benefits of their favored technology.
