This project examined greenhouse gas emissions and their effect on the overall global temperature. A climate model was developed to simulate temperature rise as a function of emission levels. Using the model, various carbon emission policies were simulated to estimate the temperature increase at 2100. New technologies are expected to mitigate the impact of emission levels. Possible innovative strategies were researched, including clean coal technology, genetically modified crops, and biofuels. The strategies were analyzed based on feasibility and economic efficiency.
