As far as I know there is no plan whatsoever.
Here with "they" I mean the people with the most political clout, access to the media an so on who campaign for the reduction of CO2 emissions. Their demand seems to be for the signing of a global treaty. This is a demand for empowering governments to further regulate economic activity, now at a global scale, and one of the main suggestions is some global tax based on carbon emissions.

More nuclear power and geo-engineering. Both these proposals exists and there is interest on the part of investors. They are always met with a lot of resistance from environmentalists. I'm not saying that all of this resistance is unjustified, caution is a good thing in these matters, but I definitely see a lot of resistance that comes from some moral framework that sees these ideas as fundamentally immoral, even more so if someone can profit from them.
