… carbon. Zero emission technologies such as wind turbines, solar panels, heat pumps and electric cars can generate electricity, heat and provide transportation without any need for fossil fuels. They offer a plausible route to achieve net zero emissions of greenhouse gases. Air pollution is often also caused by the combustion of fossil fuels, however it is usually due to very small quantities…
