    Are air and water the answer to the world’s climate challenges?

    For more than 200 years, access to fossil fuels has been a motor for development and prosperity in our society. The downside is now evident in the climate changes caused by the greenhouse effect and which, within the next generations, will become even more large-scale if it is not possible to slow down the CO2 emissions. However, if fossil fuels are no longer the solution, what is the answer to our energy needs? Henrik Wenzel, associate professor and head of the SDU Centre for Life Cycle Engineering, makes a suggestion.
