Industry’s coal and gas

Industries burn diesel fuel, gasoline, natural gas or coal to power its ovens or machines not connected to the electrical grid. The oil and coal industries themselves burn hydrocarbons for digging coal mines or...

Transports’ fuels

Transport generates CO2 emissions, with road transport, planes and boats burning their fuels (gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene). Around three-quarters of CO2 emissions come from fuels burned by road transport, and one-quarter comes from planes...

Residential and commercial

Buildings (housing and commercial) generate CO2 emissions with stoves and furnaces running on natural gas or heating oil, as well as waste decomposing in methane. This category doesn’t include electricity from power plants, but...

Building codes for residential and commercial

Legislation could convince households and businesses to buy energy-efficient new products to replace old ones. Energy-efficient Standards for housing insulation or for mandatory LED light bulbs could be enforced by: -Mandated installation, especially on...

Agriculture without fertilizers

Use of fertilizers could be reduced by better management, or by GMO seeds for increased productivity without additives. Machinery will have to run on electricity. More Info Agriculture science of improvements GMO promises for...

Industries must switch to all electrical devices

Corporations must replace their ovens, auxiliary power units, machinery running on natural gas or diesel fuel. The prime replacement tools should be powered by electricity. It should happen when the old machinery is about...

Conversion to electric heating and new power plants

Heating for housing or commercial buildings will require to replace furnace, possibly radiators, stove, and water boiler. They may be replaced with each new owner revamping the building, with voluntary and mandatory replacement, or...

Solar panels on residential or commercial buildings

Solar panels, even wind turbines, could be installed on commercial or housing premises. They could alleviate the demand for electricity from power plants. A few downsides: -Solar panel can help, but their peak around...

Solar and wind are intermittent

Solar and wind are as noncompetitive as they are intermittent. Solar and wind alone can’t quickly replace all coal power plants, due to their main downside: intermittency, i.e., when the sun doesn’t shine or...

Nuclear Generation IV of power plants

Nuclear power plants may contribute to produce electricity without GHG emissions. Should we get rid of them, or instead, expand them? Removing unpopular nuclear power plants would require even more solar and wind power...
