Seminar: What Role Will Negative Emissions Play in Managing Our Climate?, Roger Aines, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

15. April 2019, Stanford CA / USA

"Climate models suggest that keeping to within a 2° future will require us to remove excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. A common prediction is that we will need to be removing ten billion tons (gigatons) of CO2 per year from the air in 2050 and continue for the foreseeable future. [...] This is a best-case scenario which assumes more or less full electrification of the world’s economy with zero-carbon power sources. We are simply emitting too much carbon dioxide and cannot reduce it in time to meet realistic climate goals."
