Mitigating climate change will require profound changes in world energy production and use. While the full effects of climate change are not likely to be felt for decades, the need for action is more immediate, for changes in greenhouse gas concentrations are almost irreversible. Solutions exist in the form of energy efficiency improvements, fuel switching to non-carbon sources, and carbon recovery and storage, however the long-term costs of mitigation and the precise extent of climate damage remain uncertain. This volume details the options available in the energy sector to reduce climate change and identifies mechanisms to deal with both international equity and economic uncertainty.
