This article presents information on a report regarding global carbon dioxide emissions issued by the International Energy Agency. The agency stated in the report that having global carbon dioxide emissions by 2050 will require the virtual decarbonization of generation. The report highlighted the need for carbon capture and storage, a major boost for both nuclear energy and green power schemes as well as a huge energy efficiency drive.
