CO 2 + water + renewable energy → e-diesel. Böhni emphasized that the production of climate-neutral fuel is key to climate protection and therefore needs to be given a fair chance; he established the Clean Fuel Now initiative at the Federal Parliament in Bern in late 2014. Climate change is happening much faster than we thought a few years ago. It is powered by renewable energy and characterized by a particularly high level of efficiency.

Large-scale expansion of unconstrained natural gas use would not mitigate the climate problem and would cause far more deaths than expansion of nuclear power, according to their analysis, which is published in the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology. The larger columns in panels b and c reflect the all coal case and are labeled with mean values; the smaller columns reflect the all gas case; values for the latter are not shown because they are all simply a factor of ?10

Additional advantages of PHEVs are as follows: Reduces the use of foreign oil since the electricity in the United States is primarily produced by domestic non-oil resources (97% by natural gas, hydro, coal, nuclear and other alternative energy sources). Night time electric power is available from many renewable resources therefore reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
