"Political leaders across the Global North and South can reform the institutions that govern the global economy, ensuring that the market decisively favors clean energy over fossil fuels. Or, we can all bid farewell to global climate targets and gird ourselves for the far more costly dangers that come next."
The article does not deal with the numbers about the scale and available resources and does imply that the market and fiance will drive the process and succeed. Let's look good so long as we have not yet fallen off the cliff.
