Reducing Co2 emissions

Overview of Co2 emission reduction strategies.
It's actually quite simple: use less (or cleaner) fossil fuels!

Burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil, gas, etc) generates huge quantities of Co2. Fossil fuels are primarily used by transportation (cars, boats, airplanes) and by power plants.

The less energy you use, the less energy they need to produce. 

The less you drive or fly, the less fuel is needed for cars and airplanes.

Changing the energy mix by producing relatively more energy from renewables (mainly solar, wind and hydro) can be a – if not the – major contributor to less Co2 emissions. The problem however is that these are not everywhere available or can be weather dependent (for instance, no sunlight in the night).

Not all fossil fuels are the same. Some fossil fuels, such as coal or oil, provide much more Co2 emissions then some of the alternatives, such as as gas.

Removing Co2 from the air

Below you find a high level overview of negative Co2 emission strategies. Negative emission basically means that Co2 is removed from the air (after it was emitted).

At the moment most of these strategies are (much) more expensive then the alternatives (reduce Co2 emissions or, worse, do nothing). However, to reach our climate goals humanity needs all the help we can get, plus it is likely the costs will drop for some of these approaches.get.
