ABSTRACT
The author calls for immediate international measures to reduce or to half Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions by the year 2050 in order to address the global warming problem. He sets his sight on CO2 reduction rather than the broader issue of greenhouse effect. He points out alarming quantity of CO2 being dumped in our environment and that gross domestic products (GDP) of a country is directly proportional to CO2 emission. He does not advice reduction of GDP though, rather, for development of revolutionary technologies that should reduce GDP:CO2 ratio.

    One may show that CO2 emissions per GDP unit of economic output have fallen over time as well as that this ratio is smaller in rich than in poor countries. However, one cannot conclude that a halt to the growth in total emissions is likely in the future. Similarly, one may show that the CO2...
