This article reports on a reference scenario for world energy trends released by the International Energy Agency (IEA) in 2008. The reference scenario forecasts that annual carbon dioxide emissions from using fossil fuels will soar from 2006 to 2030. It puts the world on course to double greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere by the end of the century.
