Experts call for the worldwide introduction of price signals for carbon emissions, the development of technologies for capturing and sequestering carbon from coal and other fossil fuels, and the acceleration of the development and deployment of renewable-energy technologies.  A doubling of public and private expenditure on critical energy technologies is also needed, along with cutting subsidies to established energy industries and reducing incentives for excess consumption.
