Top investment priority?

FULL QUESTION:
If you were the scientific advisor to a $100-billion venture capital fund with a 100-year time horizon and a goal of averting a dangerous level of global warming, which would you recommend as the top priority for investment?

ANSWER OPTIONS:
* Carbon capture and storage
* Energy efficiency (including smart grids)
* Nanotechnology
* Natural gas
* Next-generation nuclear power (Generation III and 3+)
* Centralized renewables (geothermal, hydro, solar, wind, biomass)
* Distributed renewables (geothermal, hydro, solar, wind, biomass)
* Solar radiation management
* None of the above is needed (no significant global warming is likely to occur this century)

        Should there be an option along the lines of "None of these will avert a dangerous level of global warming"? Also, dangerous = 2 degrees C?
