Abstract: First paragraph: The global response in the face of man-made climate change has focused on reducing the environmental impacts of human activities. The Kyoto protocol, for instance, was the world first global agreement to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. Much of the focus of national and international emissions reduction strategies has been on the way in which energy is produced and used in economies. Evidence suggests that much of the economic development since the industrial revolution has gone hand in hand with increased demand for and use of energy. This has typically over the last century increased demand for and use of energy from fossil fuels, such as from coal, oil and gas. The ways in which energy is produced and used can have significant impacts on greenhouse gas emissions. Solutions proposed for reducing emissions during energy production include renewable energy technologies, while energy efficiency has been proposed as the key mechanism through which energy use is reduced.
