Abstract

Transitions to sustainable, renewable energy supply are the major components of serious climate policy framed by the aims and constraints of sustainable development. The Paris Agreement does not provide the strategy, actions, instruments, or means to boost the transition processes in global North and South. The world’s rich countries and people continue to exert rights to pollute the atmosphere with greenhouse gases. A spearhead climate policy can trigger fast elimination of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions, with full de-carbonization of the electricity supply as priority. Atomic power and flow renewable power (wind, solar, running water) are simply juxtaposed as the two major low-carbon supply options. In reality they are mutually exclusive in fully decarbonized power generation systems. They are hard to match technically while their major mutual impact is that they undermine the economic case for each other.
