Environment Friendly Innovations

The negative effects that increased temperature has on weather affects immune systems thus necessitating the need to reduce excess carbon dioxide content in the environment -
Innovating to Zero according to scientists by 2050.
With 26 billion tons of carbon dioxide yearly which is an average of about 5 tons for everyone on the planet, we have to make changes that would bring the global carbon emissions from energy production down to zero.
The factors lending to its rise have been population, services per person, energy per service and carbon dioxide per unit energy.
The report card for innovating to zero CO2 requires:
  • Basic research funding: Carbon capture and storage research and installments; Nuclear proliferation; renewable resources etc. 
  • Market incentives to reduce carbon dioxide
  • Entrepreneurial opportunity
  • Rational regulatory framework
