1. Efficiency – Transport

Increase automobile fuel efficiency

(2 billion cars projected in 2050)

… doubling the efficiency of all world’s cars from 30 to 60 mpg

$ Car size & power

2. Conservation – Transport

Reduce miles traveled by pas- senger and/or freight vehicles

… cutting miles traveled by all passenger vehicles in half

$ Increased public transport, urban


3. Efficiency – Buildings

Increase insulation, furnace

and lighting efficiency

… using best available technol- ogy in all new and existing

buildings $

House size, con- sumer demand for


4. Efficiency – Electricity

Increase efficiency of power generation

… raising plant efficiency from 40% to 60%

$ Increased plant


5. CCS Electricity

90% of CO2 from fossil fuel power plants captured, then

stored underground (800 large coal plants or 1600

natural gas plants)

… injecting a volume of CO2 every year equal to the volume

of oil extracted $$

Possibility of CO2 leakage

6. CCS Hydrogen

Hydrogen fuel from fossil sources with CCS displaces

hydrocarbon fuels

… producing hydrogen at 10 times the current rate

$$$ New infrastructure needed, hydrogen

safety issues

7. CCS Synfuels Capture and store CO2 emitted

during synfuels production from coal

… using CCS at 180 large synfuels plants

$$ Emissions still only break even with

… scaling up world ethanol pro- duction by a factor of 12

$$ Biodiversity, compet-

ing land use

14. Forest Storage

Carbon stored in new forests

… halting deforestation in 50 years


Biodiversity, compet- ing land use

15. Soil Storage

Farming techniques increase carbon retention or storage in


… practicing carbon manage- ment on all the world’s agricul-

tural soils


Reversed if land is deep-plowed later
