The challenge of global warming is not to be reduced to shared emissions burden. Most importantly, it brings opportunities to create employment, economic growth and innovative modes of production and consumption: a new economy can be shaped by aggressively combating climate change. Can technology innovation accelerate this process? FACTS conference series mobilize French and American leaders in a way to reinforce the transatlantic dialogue on climate change. In San Francisco, the conference will gather renowned scientists, industry figures as well as top entrepreneurs. As a leader in innovation and home to cutting-edge organizations, the Bay Area is always looking to break barriers and create new solutions for building a better world. From efficiency, renewable energy sources, nuclear power to carbon capture, artificial photosynthesis and geo-engineering: from reality to fiction, technology already plays and will continue to play a key role at reducing the GHG emissions. Is it enough? There's little doubt that the 20th century was full of technological breakthroughs that changed history. Will the 21st century go one step further? Should we trust technology innovation to disrupt the current climate paradigm?
