Advances in Carbon Management Technologies: Biomass Utilization, Manufacturing, and Electricity Mana


IntroductionOnly Emissions of Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) Can Account for the Warming Experienced Since the Industrial RevolutionThe Heat Added by Anthropogenic Emissions of GHGs is Already Yielding Major Impacts, with More to ComeThere is the Danger of a Runaway Situation if Warming occurs Too Rapidly and Activates Tipping Points Associated with Amplifying FeedbacksGrowing Global Emissions, the Result of a Growing Population Demanding an Expanding Array of Resource Intensive Goods and ServicesEach Country Has a Unique GHG Emission Trajectory and Mitigation ChallengeGreenhouse Gas Emissions are Associated with All Energy, Industrial and Agricultural/Land Use SectorsMajor Emission Mitigation from All Sectors and GHGs is Required Immediately in Order to Have a Chance of Meeting International TargetsEmerging Technologies Will need to be Available and Extensively Utilized if Global Warming Target Levels Stand a Chance of Being AchievedTechnology RD&D is Woefully InadequateGeoengineering Options should be StudiedConclusionsReferencesSection 1.
