CO2 output to increase by 50%....

All attempts to reduce CO2 output are doomed to's the bitter truth...
The world's emissions of the main planet-warming gas carbon dioxide will rise over 50 percent to more than 42 billion tonnes per year from 2005 to 2030 as China leads a rise in burning coal, the U.S. government forecast on Wednesday.

China's coal demand will rise 3.2 percent annually from 2005 to 2030, the Energy Information Administration said in its International Energy Outlook 2008.

U.S. coal use will rise 1.1 percent during the same period, the statistical arm of the Department of Energy projected.

EIA economist Nasir Khilji said China's coal demand will likely rise steeply because it is the cheapest fuel to feed its surging manufacturing industry and demand for electricity as much of the population moves to urban areas.

In the United States a move to more nuclear power should help slow emissions growth, he said.

This forecast is only valid if China's growth has a dramatic slow down. China's economy is currently expanding at a rate which will double it in seven years. If it's CO2 emissions rise at the same rate, by 2030 it will be spewing 200% of the world's current CO2 emissions by itself.
