Low-carbon Economy
A low-carbon economy (LCE), low-fossil-fuel economy (LFFE),[1] or decarbonised economy[2] is an economy based on low carbon power sources that therefore has a minimal output of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions into the biosphere, but specifically refers to the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. GHG emissions due to anthropogenic (human) activity are the dominant cause of observed global warming (climate change) since the mid-20th century.[3] Continued emission of greenhouse gases will cause further warming and long-lasting changes around the world, increasing the likelihood of severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts for people and ecosystems.[4] Many countries around the world are designing and implementing low emission development strategies (LEDS)
