How to navigate to a low carbon future

Official, but boring account of the EU's stategy to address climate change.

This Euro-active overview is as succinct a summary as any.

It quotes Christian Egenhofer, a senior researcher at the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in Brussels, saying it would be wrong to assume that one or a few 'killer technologies', such as hydrogen, can do the job. "Rather we will need a broad range of technologies: clean coal technologies, various renewables, carbon capture and storage, nuclear, to name but a few."

It also quotes the Pew Center on global climate change, a Washington-based think tank, that reducing greenhouse gas emissions "will require a broad portfolio of policies to foster technology development".
