The article discuses issues related to the global economy and the effects of global warming. It is stated that the connection between atmospheric carbon dioxide and global warming concerns many scientists when the concentration of carbon dioxide exceeds historical maxima as found in ice cores. The authors present a 2004 analysis published in "Science" as part of a framework related to future carbon dioxide emission objectives. It describes several technologies such as solar cells, biofuels and wind turbines which are used to control carbon emission.
