Forbes: IEA Challenged to Address Limits to Negative Emissions

"The WEO offers the authoritative global outlook on the mix of fuels that will supply our energy decades into the future and, by extension, the level of carbon dioxide emissions that will result. Reverence for the document is so great in government and industry that some maintain that it does more than merely project the future, but in fact defines our path toward it."

CEPS: Sinking to Zero: the role of carbon capture and negative emissions in EU climate policy

"The updated EU long-term climate strategy with its net-zero emissions objective and the IPCC's Special Report on the 1.5°C target prompt a renewed strategic look at negative emissions and carbon capture. Reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions requires more carbon sinks and other approaches to remove CO2 from the atmosphere."
