The impact of different energy options on atmospheric CO2 levels

  • Friedrich Niehaus


It is found that large differences in future atmospheric CO2 concentration may be estimated due to different energy supply strategies. At present there seems to be no immediate need to reduce fossil fuel consumption. However, considering the magnitude of possible effects, efforts should be made to keep the increase of fossil fuel consumption as low as possible. Especially with regard to the CO2 strategy given in figure 6 it should be borne in mind that fossil fuel plants which are planned today are expected to operate beyond the 1st decade of the next century
