Fuhrman, Jay; et al. (2020): Food–energy–water implications of negative emissions technologies in a +1.5 °C future

Fuhrman, Jay; McJeon, Haewon; Patel, Pralit; Doney, Scott C.; Shobe, William M.; Clarens, Andres F. (2020): Food–energy–water implications of negative emissions technologies in a +1.5 °C future. In Nat. Clim. Chang. DOI: 10.1038/s41558-020-0876-z.

"Here we show that DAC could provide up to 3 GtCO2 yr−1 of negative emissions by 2035—equivalent to 7% of 2019 global CO2 emissions—based on current-day assumptions regarding price and performance."
