I would propose the production of cities on slopes which produce electrical power food and water in excess of its occupants requirements.
Mass-producible integral fast reactor modules can power every country on earth for nearly a millennium with waste products already at hand.
A modified electric motor advances is own field coil yielding fuel less electricity with zero Co2 emission
Countries implement a carbon dividend (fee, tax, etc.) which is also applied to the carbon footprint of their imported fuel and goods.
Replace all coal and oil electricity genergation with renewables and natural gas by 2025. Replace the natural gas with biomethane by 2040.
How to restore our climate back to Pre-Industrial revolution temperatures for land,sea and air and how to restore atmospheric Co2 to 300ppm.
Sometimes, there comes a time, when... you just have to "bite the bullet"
Cheap, practical fusion may be closer than you think.
Different nuclear that can solve the world's energy needs without pollution that is safe: Molten Salt Reactors running on thorium ARE safe.
Algae oxygenated our atmosphere, algae can prevent Clathrate Gun extinction while mining bio-fuel stocks for storage in salt domes.
The patented MIklos Technology offers two results: no more gases, and a great business. www.ecoplant.mx
Nobody can afford solar panels. Or, everybody can, as long as one does a little bit of money pooling.
Energy Intensity Lowering - Makes the Earth less Carbon Emission.
Energy is Life Use it wisely
Today power wastage Tomorrow power shortage
AC power transmission is HUGELY inefficient and should be replaced by HVDC; Direct Current!
HVDC is at some 100 times more efficiënt!
Use the piezoelectric effect to harness vibration of cars on highways to generate electricity.
Eliminating vampire power (consumed by appliances that are allegedly "off", e.g. TVs) reduced my power consumption by about 12%, instantly.
Rapidly deploy simple demand response technologies which do not require central approval or energy markets to create smart grid version 0.1.
A similar magnetic effect derived from a generator's output can be applied in reverse to compensate for the effect of counter-torque.
The people have over looked an alternative energy system. Our system is a pneumatic / electric generator , fuel less with zero Co2 emission

if we could build mini turbines into buildings like skyscrapers they could power themselves and be totally off the grid
Create a Carbon Fee and Dividend Policy
As in SO2 mitigation, spontaneously remove CO2 from power plant flue gas using wet limestone scrubbing.
Use hydro power, and hydrogen, created using my Flashing Liquid process. See it on You Tube, White Gasoline Vapor, by Bill Kendrick
An outline of a plan to acquire coal companies, phase out production, mitigate impacts on communities and on coal employees.
Enabling financial institutions and their clients to confidently make informed investment decisions that will move energy capital forward.
