Electricity from Nuclear.   Fire from Biofuels.

Climate Change is a chemistry problem.                         Advancing Energy Systems in the face of Climate Change, Rising Energy Demand, and Legacy Infrastructure.

Initial executive summary:

Two senior scientists with chemistry backgrounds, Dr. George A. Olah and Dr. Charles W. Forsberg, suggest making CO2-neutral biofuels by using air's CO2 extracted from plants.
Both scientists cover the subject extremely well but in different ways. The image above shows how Climate Change's progress can be stopped and possibly reversed.

Fossil fuel fires will disappear one way or another in the long run. Most of industrial civilization's electrical and heat energy will be supplied by a nuclear-hydrogen-biomass system.
Our heat will originate as nuclear fission, be stored in CO2-neutral biomass molecules made from air's CO2, and be released as it is now - as fire, as needed, by CO2-neutral combustion.
Nuclear heat is the only practical thermal alternative to fossil fuel heat. Doing this on a global scale will take thousands of small modular reactors and substantial amounts of nuclear fuel. 
Fortunately, we have all the nuclear fuel we will ever need, several better ways to dispose of nuclear's waste, and, best of all, the technologies to make it all happen quickly already exist.

Dr. Forsberg's slides show how: Nuclear Hydrogen Biomass System - Slides - Dr Charles W. Forsberg .pdf    Nuclear Hydrogen Biomass System - Paper - Dr Charles W. Forsberg .pdf
Conclusion: There is sufficient biomass to meet U.S. liquid-fuel needs if the energy and hydrogen inputs for biomass-to-fuel processing plants are provided by advanced nuclear energy.

This site describes how mankind can progress to the above image while still having the abundant disposable energy - both nuclear and combustion - necessary for all to live comfortably

The big picture: "The rising carbon dioxide footprint may be troublesome, but it is a side effect of the creation of immense benefits." - Peter Allitt, quoted by M.J. Kelly.
Energy is the master resource. Without energy nothing happens. The more energy we have, the richer we are. The United States is a 10,000 Watt society; Mexico, 2,000 W; Haiti, 500W.
Climate Change alone has proven itself to be an insufficient incentive to decarbonize energy.  We want new decarbonized fuels that are better, cheaper, and more powerful than fossil.

Neither Dr. Olah nor Dr. Forsberg have any connection to, this web site.
Your author, an EE, is working to stop Climate Change by identifying and describing to the public the industrial equipment he thinks will be needed to make the above vision a reality.

What would a modern industrialized world powered by a Nuclear-Hydrogen-Biomass energy grid be like?

A world with 400,000+ small nuclear reactors - some as small as 2 megaWatts -, one or more islands in the Ross Sea (an ocean around the Antarctic Continent) as a dumping ground for radioactive worn-out nuclear reactors and waste nuclear fuel, 400+ carbon-neutral fuel refineries about the size of today's oil refineries, a family of combustion fuels including carbon-neutral gasoline-like, diesel-like, and natural gas-like fuels either half as expensive or twice as powerful. 

Oh, yes, and the progress of Climate Change would be stopped and perhaps even reversed.
