===Future CO2 Emissions and Climate Change from Existing Energy Infrastructure===

*CO2 emitting infrastructure will keep being built unless developing alternatives becomes priority
*The US produces one of the highest (>30) Gt Co2/year in the world as well as a significant amount of (~225) t CO2/person/year in the world.
*When normalized to GDP is is moderately low
*If no new CO2 emitting infrastructure is built, warming levels will peak at 0.7degreesC.
*30TW of alternative energy sources are needed by 2050 to not produce CO2 emissions

*the statistically main cause of CO2 emissions in the US is energy use
*Suggests that policies that promote alternatives can help
*reducing growth of energy use is the most effective immediate solution to the problem.
