2050 The Shift from Dirty to Clean Energy

The Copenhagen climate summit of 2009 did not deliver what its framers craved, and as carbon-dioxide emissions continue to climb, the future of the new generations and the current is at risk–notably now that the first decade of the 21st century has taken its place as the warmest on record. This paper discusses new thinking to change the energy mix that the world uses, by moving away from coal and oil in our energy demand, to natural gas, and then to nuclear and renewable energy, by enforcing carbon tax and making clean renewable energy cheaper.
