  • 3.
    • IPCC conclusions in 2007:
    • Irreversible tipping point at plus two degrees
      • above pre-industrial level (today: + .87 degrees)
    • Requires peak in global emissions by 2015-20 and 50-80% reductions in 2050
    What is the target?
  • 4.
    • The imminent risk is that if warming extends beyond
    • certain so-called tipping points, a number of feed-back
    • mechanisms set in:
    • Diminishing CO2 uptake capacity in the sea
    • Melting of solar radiation deflecting ice caps
    • The thawing of methane saturated permafrost areas
    • spiraling the globe into a faster and, notably,
    • irreversible, rate of global warming.
    Tipping points
  • 5.  
  • 6. 50% Co2 reduktion i 200 – 80% i 2030
  • 7. Population projected to rise from 6.7 billion today to 9 billion in 2050 Fair allocation would mean 2 tons per person Denmark 2010: 13 tons / 19 tons Since IPCC’s latest report
  • 8. The EU is committed to reducing its overall emissions to at least 20% below 1990 levels by 2020, and is ready to scale up this reduction to 30%. Now Denmark supports this target. Where are we?
  • 9. The EU has also set itself the target of increasing the share of renewable energy use to 20% by 2020. What is the target?
  • 10.
    • Wind, wind, wind – and biomass.
    • Major changes required within:
    • Energy generation
    • Transportation
    • Housing
    Danish Commission on Climate Change Policy
  • 11. The good news
  • 12.
    • We can do it and it is a winner case
    • For the environment
    • For the economy
    • For the security
    40% CO2 reduction in 2020 – 80% in 2050
  • 13.
    • We can do it by
    • Energy efficiency
    • Low or no carbon energy supply
    • Terrestial carbon in forestry and agriculture
    • Behavioral change
    50% CO2 reduction in 2020 – 80% in 2030
  • 14. Example: Transport in net energy cons.: 225 PJ 80% losses: 180 PJ The good news: We can do it!
  • 15.
    • Electric cars
    • Bio fuels
    • More public transport
    • More freight by rail and sea
    Main technical solutions
  • 16.  
  • 17.
    • Two steps towards 80-95% CO2 reduction:
    • First step: Outreach of existings technologies
    • Second step: Innovation of new clean tech
    • First step: 2010 – 2020 (40%)
    • Second step: 2020 – 2050 (80-95%)
    A two step pathway to 80-95% CO2 reduction
  • 18. Providing products/commodities that gives value to the consumer with a minimal emission of GHG. The challenge for business
  • 19. The good news: We can do it!
    • It takes:
    • Legal framework and economic regulations from the politicians
    • Financing and long term investments from the private sector – good business!
    • Active citizens and businesses – like you
  • 20. Let’s get started!
