GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE--THE TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGE
PRINCIOTTA, F. T. GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE--THE TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGE. In Proceedings, Air Pollution 2007; Fifteenth International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Air Pollution, Algarve, PORTUGAL, April 23 - 25, 2007. WIT Press, Ashurst, Uk, Section 7, (2007).
Anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, have led to increasing atmospheric concentrations which are at least partly responsible for the roughly 0.7% degree C global warming earth has experienced since the industrial revolution. With industrial activity and population expected to increase for the rest of the century, large increases in greenhouse gas emissions are projected, with additional and potentially substantial subsequent global warming predicted. This paper provides a brief overview of the factors driving CO2 emissions globally, and for selected countries an examination of key technologies that would be required for an aggressive mitigation program, and a concise sector-by-sector summary of mitigation options along with R&D priorities.
