The Conversation: COP24: here's what must be agreed to keep warming at 1.5°C

"The United Nations, in the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5ºC has accepted that there isn’t any obvious pathway to zero emissions in such a short time frame, so they have pegged their hopes on NETs – Negative Emissions Technologies. These approaches include carbon capture and storage (CCS), which involves sucking CO₂ from the air and storing it deep underground."

ANU TV: 2018 Negative Emissions Conference (Videos)

"Earth is warming at an unprecedented rate due to anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. This was recognised at the 2015 Paris Climate Convention (COP21) in 2015 who agreed to limit warming at 2°C or less. Emission reductions are essential to help mitigate further warming, but we are already likely to exceed this 2°C warming. In response, COP21 recognised that some form of ‘negative emissions’ is required to stay within the 2°C warming target."

Nature: Put more carbon in soils to meet Paris climate pledges

"Soils are crucial to managing climate change. They contain two to three times more carbon than the atmosphere. Plants circulate carbon dioxide from the air to soils, and consume about one-third of the CO2 that humans produce. Of that, about 10–15% ends up in the earth."

BBC News: Climate change: Can 12 billion tonnes of carbon be sucked from the air?

"[...] The most headline-grabbing solution is for giant machines to filter the air and strip out the gas, as my colleague Matt McGrath has reported. But although the costs are falling, they remain very high and many wonder whether it's feasible to plaster the planet with so much hardware."
