The World Business Council for Sustainable Development has released a high-quality, 9-page brochure describing the technologies and policies we’ll need through 2050 to avoid exceeding a “budget” of 1 trillion tons of emitted (cumulative) CO2 since the Industrial Revolution. Despite its short length, the brochure covers a wide variety of topics, including the need to decouple economic growth from emissions growth, carbon pricing, investment in technology, impacts of shale gas development, renewable energy funding policy, nuclear, CCS, vehicle efficiency, building efficiency, and sustainable forest management. Check out the link below for the complete brochure.
