Carbon Pollution: If We Don’t Change Our Direction, We’ll End Up Where We’re Headed
Door Jonathan G. Koomey, Koomey.com / Climate Progress, 19 april 2013

[...] The key conclusion from [...] [an] analysis (which is based on lower-bound resource estimates taken from the most recent Global Energy Assessment) is that fossil fuel resource constraints are unlikely to constrain carbon emissions in the twenty first century.

[...] We need to leave more than three-quarters of proven fossil fuel reserves in the ground if we’re to stabilize the climate (for more technical backup on this point, see this classic paper by Meinshausen et al. and the technical details provided in Cold Cash, Cool Climate). It’s hard to imagine a starker challenge for humanity, but it’s one that we must confront if we’re to leave a livable world for our descendants.
