    SUMMARY Increased atmospheric CO2 concentration is widely being considered as the main driving factor that causes the phenomenon of global warming, due to the ever-boosting use of fossil fuels. In this study, a fuzzy-stochastic programming model with soft constraints (FSP-SC) is developed for...
