SUSTAINABLE THERMAL AIR CONDITIONING - ZERO EMISSION COOLING WITHOUT GLOBAL WARMING

Emissions

Transport produces 7 gigatons of carbon dioxide-equivalent greenhouse gas emissions annually, or 23 percent of energy-related emissions, which is around 14 percent of all emissions. 

In individual countries, transport can account for much higher shares, even 35 percent of all emissions. 

Growth rates in emissions for some sub-sectors like air transport and international shipping are very high, so the Transport Sector requires special focus to keep emissions from ballooning out of control, as some projections indicate. 

Transport, however, is a service derived from economic growth. 

We find that wealthier people travel more, locally and internationally, and demand more goods and services. 

So, as a country develops economically, movement of people and goods increases.

In terms of greenhouse gas emissions reduction, transport is constrained in some sub-sectors where few economically viable alternative fuels exist. 

Some transport, therefore, can only currently be made more efficient at using existing fossil fuels; others, however, do have alternative fuels, such as electricity for cars instead of gasoline. 

Other modes of transport can be avoided completely using information and communication technologies. Project Drawdown has examined 11 of these transport solutions
