What should be the Europe’s plan to address climate change?

This contest seeks broad, coherent visions for what the Europe should do about climate change. Authors are asked to include strategies for all sectors of the Europe's economy that generate emissions (energy supply, transportation, industry, buildings, and all others), as well as for how the region can adapt to changes caused by climate change. For each sector, you can combine your own and other people’s proposals from other Climate CoLab contests (both current and past). You can also work with the Impact Assessment Fellows to estimate the overall reduction in greenhouse gas emissions that would result from the combination of actions you propose. Plans will be evaluated on how well they bring together different proposals to articulate a comprehensive and feasible plan for how the Europe can effectively address climate change.

The problem:There is a huge surplus right to emit in the EU ETS.The solution:Remove the oversupply of unused emission rights.The action:Buy
We cannot conventionally afford the huge funds needed to resolve climate change in time. Europe has an opportunity to be unconventional.
Mitigation and adaptations strategies are key, but altering the framework of the economy is paramount
This proposal is designed to provide Planet Earth the option to effectively counteract the effects of atmospheric greenhouse gases.
A massive increase in the production of water, carbon negative energy and nutrients can be achieved through chemosynthesis.
