Ars Technica: Here’s what it could cost for California to hit zero-emissions goal

"However, achieving net-zero emissions is easier than "actual" zero because activities that actively remove CO2 from the atmosphere (sometimes called "negative emissions") could cancel out some of the stubborn emissions we can't get rid of. To find out how that might work in California's case, a Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory report analyzed options to estimate costs. It points to a hefty—though not impossible—price tag to meet that 2045 goal."
