Carbon dioxide is the main culprit in the temperature rise of the atmosphere. In Sweden, carbon dioxide comprises 80% of the total contribution to the greenhouse effect. Studies have shown that there are firm possibilities to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide through improved efficiency and conversion to other energy sources. To achieve the environmental goals and to prevent the risk for serious effects of a temperature rise, the release of carbon dioxide have to be reduced by 50-80% within the next 50 years. A first-hand goal ought to be to stabilize the emission on the 1990 level from the year 2000. The primary areas of necessary change are the energy and transportation sectors. Also described in the report are how to reduce the release of other greenhouse gases, and which decisions have to be taken to reduce the effects of a temperature rise.
