Climate & Environment at Imperial Blog: What to do with all the carbon dioxide?

"It has long been assumed that carbon capture and storage (CCS) will cover an important portion of the emissions that need to be reduced to avoid the risk of dangerous levels of climate change. But the technology has yet to be deployed on a scale large enough to do that. And the conversation has now shifted –  to avoid the risk of dangerous levels of climate change, the world will actually need to actively remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This is where negative emissions technologies (NETs), which rely in large part on CCS (see box on NETs), come in."

Carbon Brief: The Carbon Brief Interview: Dr Bill Hare

"I am not convinced that BECCS is likely to be the biggest future way of doing that. Everyone is aware of significant limitations on bioenergy for sustainable development, concerns and so on. It’s going to be a significant factor, but maybe not even the largest or the biggest. I think there are other technologies that can also take CO2 out of the air and I imagine there’s going to be a portfolio of different approaches."

BBC News: Climate's magic rabbit: Pulling CO2 out of thin air

"UN climate negotiators are meeting in Bonn amid a welter of reports indicating that concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere have broken records, while international attempts to curb greenhouse gases are not doing enough to avoid dangerous levels of warming. Our environment correspondent Matt McGrath has travelled to Switzerland to see if technology to remove CO2 from the air could be the answer to this ongoing carbon conundrum."
