A new study suggests that a carbon-based fuel may be able to reduce CO2 emissions by as much as one-third by 2050 if the U.S. continues its current path toward the Paris climate agreement.
The study, by researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder and the University at Buffalo, estimates that the use of a carbonated fuel could reduce CO 2 emissions by a staggering one-fourth by 2050, a feat that would require a drastic shift in energy usage.
The researchers estimate that the carbonated beverage could save the Earth from about 6 trillion tons of CO2 by 2050.
The research comes as carbon dioxide emissions continue to rise, according to data from the United Nations, which has shown that the amount of CO 2 entering the atmosphere each year has tripled since the Industrial Revolution.
The Paris agreement, which aims to limit the increase in CO 2 and keep global temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), aims to keep warming below the 2.5 degrees Celsius threshold by 2100.
The agreement calls for keeping global warming below 2.0 degrees Celsius.
The United States has made progress on reducing its emissions from carbon dioxide over the last few years, as the country has made significant investments in reducing emissions from oil and gas extraction.
But the scientists say the United States could make even more progress in reducing its carbon dioxide by 2050 under a plan put forth by the Trump administration, which includes a carbon tax.
The scientists say their study shows that a tax on carbon could also be a powerful tool to curb CO2 and increase the amount that can be burned to power transportation, industry and homes.
The new study, which was published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications, finds that a $2.00 per ton carbon tax could have a dramatic impact on the amount available for energy production.
Carbon taxes have been proposed for several years, but only a few have been implemented.
The authors note that the $2 per ton tax is equivalent to roughly a 2.3 percent increase in electricity prices.
They estimate that a 2 percent increase could lead to a $40 billion to $60 billion impact on U..
S.-based carbon dioxide production and use.
In addition to helping drive the U,S.
economy, the carbon tax is also expected to spur investments in renewable energy sources, including wind turbines and solar panels.
The U.N. estimates that by 2030, the United Kingdom and Germany could be the world’s largest carbon emitters, with about 20 percent of their total energy use coming from the use in the form of fossil fuels.
In the United Arab Emirates, which is one of the world top greenhouse gas emitters and is a signatory to the Paris agreement but not yet a party to it, a carbon fee could also play a major role in the region’s efforts to cut carbon.
The carbon fee would apply to the first $50 billion of a country’s emissions.
In this case, the study suggests a carbon dioxide tax of $1.00/ton could be used to reduce emissions by more than one-fifth by 2030.
