Scientists figured out a way to completely transition 143 countries to clean energy sources by 2050.

The aggressive plan could cut global power demand by more than half within 30 years using mostly existing technology, according to ScienceAlert — a crucial step toward preventing the most catastrophic impacts of climate change.

The plan, published in the journalOne Earth last week, is actually an update to an older report by the same Stanford team that accounted for fewer countries.

The new version would require an investment of $73 trillion, with some of the money going toward developing new technology. This would include tech that makes long-distance travel and shipping cleaner.

According to the researchers, the plan would pay for itself within seven years and create millions of jobs along the way.
