PR Newswire: Santa Clara County, Earth Day Network, and Foundation for Climate Restoration Announce Launch of "Local Governments for Climate Restoration" Campaign

"With climate restoration as the underlying framework, all jurisdictions can pledge that 100 percent of their electrical power originates from clean renewable sources, that they commit to Building Electrification "Reach Codes" that call for all-electric buildings and electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure during the new construction process, and that they incorporate carbon-negative building materials, including low embodied emissions in concrete to restore our atmospheric carbon dioxide to preindustrial levels."

Snyder, Brian (2019): Beyond the social cost of carbon: Negative emission technologies as a means for biophysically setting the price of carbon

Snyder, Brian F. (2019): Beyond the social cost of carbon: Negative emission technologies as a means for biophysically setting the price of carbon. In AMBIO, pp. 1–14. DOI: 10.1007/s13280-019-01301-y.

"Here, we propose that the cost of emerging negative-emission technologies would be an alternative means for setting a carbon price and avoid these philosophical and practical weaknesses."
