Grist: Microsoft can’t achieve its climate goals alone — so it’s enlisting other companies to go net-zero

"Grist coined the term “carbon invisible” to describe the two-part plan: Microsoft intends to go carbon-negative by 2030, meaning it will pull more carbon out of the atmosphere than it puts in by that date."

Fyson, Claire L.; et al. (2020): Fair-share carbon dioxide removal increases major emitter responsibility

Fyson, Claire L.; Baur, Susanne; Gidden, Matthew; Schleussner, Carl-Friedrich (2020): Fair-share carbon dioxide removal increases major emitter responsibility. In Nat. Clim. Chang. DOI: 10.1038/s41558-020-0857-2.

"Here we apply two common burden-sharing principles to show how CDR responsibility could be shared between regions in 1.5 °C and 2 °C mitigation pathways. We find that fair-share outcomes for the United States, the European Union and China could imply 2–3 times larger CDR responsibilities this century compared with a global least-cost approach."

Bellona: Why we need transparency on Carbon Dioxide Removal

"Now is the opportunity for the EU to take leadership in defining what CDR is and how it will contribute to the EU’s climate goals. Failing do so will leave a gap for false solutions and dubious accounting, jeopardising the entirety of EU climate action."
