Fuelling Future Emissions: Examining Fossil Fuel Production Outlooks Used in Climate Models
2011 (English)In: Climate Change: Research and Technology for Adaptation and Mitigation / [ed] Juan Blanco, Houshang Kheradmand, Intech , 2011, 39-62 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
The anthropogenic component of projected climate change is dependent on the future emissions of greenhouse gasses. Energy production is, with a roughly 60% share, the principal contributor to mankind’s release of CO2 to the atmosphere. This is predominantly caused by the use of fossil fuels in various combustion processes. Consequently, anthropogenic emissions and global warming are fundamentally linked to future energy production. Projections of how the global energy system will develop over the next centuryare cornerstones in the assessment of future climate change caused by mankind.
