High Costs for Achieving Emission Reductions Targets without Nuclear and C.C.S.

by Cameron Bernhardt

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generation is one of the primary means by which humans can mitigate global climate change. Employing nuclear power generation and carbon capture and storage (C.C.S.) are two methods for decarbonizing electricity generation processes, but the merit of these technologies is often debated. 334 more words

Climate: Industrial CO2 emissions need to be targeted as part of greenhouse gas reduction efforts

Carbon capture and storage may be a critical part of the equation

Staff Report

While energy production is the main focus of greenhouse reduction efforts, heavy industry also needs to be considered, according to new research showing that mitigation strategies are needed to address CO2 emissions from heavy industry, including oil refining and the production of cement and steel. 679 more words

Making ends meet: Negative emissions for climate stabilization

By Sabine Fuss, Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC) and IIASA Ecosystems Services and Management Program

Current strategies for limiting climate change to no more than 2°C above pre-industrial levels are centered around a shift towards less carbon-intensive technology, increases in energy efficiency, and changes in management and behavior. 807 more words
