As part of the fight against climate change, CCGS technology (Carbon Capture and Geological Storage) is considered to be a necessary solution for lowering CO2 emissions caused by human activities. Unlike photovoltaic systems, which can lose 80 % of their power in a matter of seconds during periods of cloud cover, thermodynamic solar plants have a thermal inertia that curbs intermittent production .

Obs'COP 2021 : Despite the increase in extreme climate events, citizen mobilization for climate change is not growing | EDF FR

While it was thought that the world's population would be increasingly convinced of the existence of climate change caused by human activity- and 66 % are indeed convinced of this- instead we are seeing a growth in climate skepticism... While the public are able to correctly identify (at a rate of over 80 %) CO 2 emissions resulting from industry, electric power plants running on fossil fuels, transportation and deforestation, they are less convinced about the impact of heating and air conditioning (65 %, of which 21 %"" a lot) . As for the role played by agriculture and digital tech, these seem less important (respectively 45 % and 42 %).

Climate International Observatory - Acting on a daily basis

In the 2020 study, it was stated that CO2 emissions, for example, were only mentioned by 62 % as a cause of climate change, whereas inaccurate factors such as heat production or the hole in the ozone layer were still mentioned respectively by 43 % and 32 % . In 2021, we see that for the very large majority of the public, CO2 emissions are primarily due to industry, fossil-fuel-fired power plants, deforestation and transport, i .e . in the case of the first three, factors on which consumers don't have a direct influence.
