C2G2: Governing large-scale carbon dioxide removal: are we ready?

"In 2015, Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) agreed to limit global temperature increase to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the increase to 1.5 °C . This goal is to be operationalized in part through achievement of a balance between anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks, as stated in Article 4 of the UNFCCC’s Paris Agreement."

Millions of tons of hydrogen sulfide gas are hurled high into the Earth’s atmosphere, where they remain for years. Tracking the ash clouds from Krakatoa alerts the scientific community for the first time to the existence of the jet streams."
