Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Is the world getting warmer? if so, what are the causes of this global climate change? Are the actions of mankind to blame for earth’s temperature increases and what should be done about these issues? The current warming trend is of particular significance because most of it is very likely human-induced. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the largest contributor, accounting for more than 63% of the total that contributes to global warming. The CO2 is released into the atmosphere due to direct burning of fossil fuels. Today world’s 84% energy comes from oil, coal, and natural gas all of which are fossil fuels. Power plants account major source for the CO2 emissions about 41% of the total emissions. Capturing CO2 at large point sources where it is quite concentrated makes sense. Now it needs to increase the use of renewable fuels.
