The Correlation Between WIP and Emissions
World Industrial Product (deflated world GDP' in
real value - i.e. World physical production).
CO2 emissions (in CO2 mass units Doubling time
29 years. Data CDIAC statistics GDI.
The correlation between the WIP and the CO2
emissions is still however very high.

efficiency gain measures to control future
climate change, Astronomical Observatory of Rome
and the Global Dynamics Institute

Efficiency Limitations to Emissions Reduction
Total per capita emissions reduction
Rate of Per Capita Emissions Reduction
Per capita emissions reduction through Pilzer 1st
law substitution (Technology change resource
use change)
Per capita emissions reduction through
thermodynamic efficiency
The Future
2008
Conclusion It is essential that R D into
substitution technologies occurs now in order to
ramp up Pilzer first law substitution later and
avoid thermodynamic constraints. This is not
happening in Australia

Affect of Leakage on Geosequestration
"The assumption of exclusive reliance on storage
may be an extreme one, however the example
illustrates that emphasis on energy efficiency
and increased reliance on renewable energy must
be priority areas for greenhouse gas mitigation.
The higher the expected leakage rate and the
larger the uncertainty, the less attractive
geosequestration is compared to other mitigation
alternatives such as shifting to renewable energy
sources, and improved efficiency in production
and consumption of energy."
