Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop a hypothesis that models Earth's likely carbon dioxide content for the future and the impacts that global electricity generation supply conversion could have on mitigating or adding emissions. The goal of the study is to clarify the changes necessary to bring anthropogenic CO2 emissions to stable levels and to decrease the possibility of triggering global CO2 positive feedback mechanisms by 2050. This study shows the environmental results that would be induced by changing generation emissions in a quantifiable manner and suggests the steps that need to be taken to insure environmental stability going forward.
