GreenBiz: What you should know about carbon removal purchase agreements

"10 billion tons. That’s the amount of carbon dioxide the United Nations figures we need to remove from the atmosphere annually by 2050 to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. 4,000 metric tons. That’s the capacity of the world’s largest direct air capture facility in Iceland, brought online in early September by Swiss venture Climeworks. Clearly, that’s quite a gap between supply and demand."

Video: CNBC: Why Bill Gates Is Funding Solar Geoengineering Research

"Fires burning across the Amazon rainforest have renewed the debate about solutions to climate change. Bill Gates is backing the first high-altitude experiment of one radical approach called solar geoengineering. It's meant to mimic the effects of a giant volcanic eruption. Thousands of planes would fly at high altitudes, spraying millions of tons of particles around the planet to create a massive chemical cloud that would cool the surface. [...] The technology is not far from being ready and it's affordable, but it could cause massive changes in regional weather patterns and eradicate blue sky. [...]Watch the video to learn how it would work and hear the debate around the ethics and efficacy of solar geoengineering."

Blog: The Future of Carbon Capture: A View of the Current Players

"As per the 2021 IPCC report, it is clear that it is no longer sufficient to simply reduce carbon emissions. In order to tackle climate change, we need to rapidly remove carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. While this seems daunting, hundreds of companies have worked towards various carbon capture and sequestration methods over the last few decades. We have compiled a list of some of these companies with a variety of carbon sequestration technologies."
