This presentation discusses the executive goals to reduce petroleum consumption and CO2 emissions by 2040. Current trends in fossil fuel consumption are presented in relation to the level of carbon dioxide emitted from each source. The presentation suggests alternative scenarios to achieve these goals, including alternative fuels and fuel efficiency improvements. AMIGA runs are used to demonstrate optimal outcomes under various scenarios.
