"CONTRACTION & CONVERGENCE"

a GLOBAL FOSSIL FUEL CONSUMERS' PROTOCOL
for 450 ppmv

A GLOBAL CONSUMERS' PROTOCOL for OIL, GAS and COAL negotiated in the form of "CONTRACTION & CONVERGENCE"

This is for stabilising atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases. This is the over-riding reason for the retreat from fossil fuel dependency.

The total allowable consumption must be determined by the constraints of the global climate system recognising the objective of the UNFCCC.

All are expressed as carbon emissions equivalent (in gigatonnes carbon Gtc).

The carbon production/consumption budgets shown here are the same in total and consistent with stabilising atmospheric CO2 concentrations at 450 ppmv, 70% over pre-industrial levels.

PRODUCERS' PROTOCOLS for OIL, GAS and COAL
are required for the retreat from fossil fuel dependency.

The total allowable production must be determined
by the total allowable carbon consumption
in the CONSUMPTION PROTOCOL
("CONTRACTION & CONVERGENCE")
shown above.

However, the OIL and GAS are depleting,
shown here at rates projected by Colin Campbell.
His all-producer-country OIL depletion data are
shown below "GLOBAL GAS" in the chart.


The all-producer-country COAL data are
shown above "GLOBAL GAS".

The COAL is not in depletion.
Here it is constrained to being equal to
the balance available under the total
C&C arrangement above. It is shown
as phased out pro rata based on
shares of production in 1996.

All are expressed as carbon
emissions equivalent (in
gigatonnes carbon Gtc)
