23: Climate / Energy Pathways 2100

  • Key questions for this investigation

    • How might global society’s energy production be changed to keep MGT increase to the Paris target of less than 2.0°C?
    • How could energy efficiency be changed to meet this goal?
    • How could carbon sequestration play a role in meeting this goal?

    To investigate these questions you will design a pathway for achieving the 2015 Paris goal of keeping the increase in mean annual global temperature (MGT) to less than 2.0°C. To do so you will be using three tools,

    1. a graph of world energy consumption and production,
    2. a flowchart of global energy flow for 2011, and
    3. an online energy / climate model.
