Bloomberg: With New Urgency, Climate Scientists Recommend Carbon Removal

"The latest scientific assessment from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change generated plenty of grim headlines on Monday, but at least one of its most important findings went largely unremarked upon. Cutting emissions is paramount, they say—but in order to keep warming below catastrophic levels, we now must also find a way to take billions of tons of the carbon dioxide we’ve poured into the atmosphere back out."

Lee, Kaylin Soo Bin; et al. (2021): Fair distributions of carbon dioxide removal obligations and implications for effective national net-zero targets

Lee, Kaylin Soo Bin; Fyson, Claire; Schleussner, Carl-Friedrich (2021): Fair distributions of carbon dioxide removal obligations and implications for effective national net-zero targets. In Environ. Res. Lett. DOI: 10.1088/1748-9326/ac1970.

"Here we show that, depending on the normative assumptions underlying a CDR burden-sharing system, the adjusted net-zero date for big emitting countries could shift forward by up to 15 years (EU, based on per capita GDP) to 35 years (Russia, based on cumulative per capita emissions) compared with what is modeled domestically in global least-cost scenarios."
