Coming in 2009 -- Increasing World Energy Demand

Total world consumption of marketed energy is projected to increase by 50 percent from 2005 to 2030.

Coal will continue to dominate as the fuel of choice for electricity generation over the next two decades.

The recent increase in concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is the result of human activities, mainly the burning of fossil fuels. As the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere has increased, so has the average surface temperature of the earth.
