Putting the Genie Back: Solving the Climate and Energy Dilemma

Цена: 2004 руб.

On November 4th 2016 the Paris Agreement entered into force. The warming
of the climate system, first recognized over a century ago, has become one of
the key political and social issues of our time. Some still deny it is
happening, others are incensed by the slow pace of change, while most are left
confused and uncertain not just by the science, but by the panoply of solutions
put forward by politicians, business people, academics and activists. At its most ambitious, the Paris Agreement implies a transition within the
global energy system such that carbon dioxide emissions fall rapidly from 40
billion tonnes per annum in 2016, to net-zero by the middle of the century. Yet
our fossil fuel based energy system which ushered in the Industrial Revolution
nearly 200 years ago continues to grow and evolve even as new sources of energy
come into the market and compete.
The principal economic instrument for change is clear and has been for over two
decades, but in 2017 only a fraction of the global economy actively employs
government led carbon pricing policies and within that only a handful of
systems operate at a level commensurate with the pace and scale of change that
is necessary.
As deployment of new energy technologies accelerates, can solutions be found to
cover the full range of services delivered by fossil fuels and can warming be
limited to the agreed global goals? Putting the Genie Back explores the climate
issue from its very beginnings through to the end of end of the 21st Century
and looks in depth at the transition challenge we collectively face.
