In this article the authors discuss the importance of technology revolution in stabilizing climate change. They state that global technology are now given with huge attention to determine its use in addressing climate change. The authors believe that reducing carbon emissions can be achieved through conducting energy-technology revolution rather than setting emissions targets.
