Bellamy, Rob. 2020: “Negative Emissions Technologies.”

Bellamy, Rob. 2020: “Negative Emissions Technologies.” International Encyclopedia of Geography, March, 1–6. https://doi.org/10.1002/9781118786352.wbieg2008.

‌"Negative emissions technologies (NETs) have been proposed for removing carbon dioxide directly from the atmosphere in order to moderate global warming. This entry describes the different ideas that exist under the category and traces the origins of the concept before examining their potential contribution to keeping global warming below 1.5°C, their technical readiness, and estimated costs."
