Maandag 27 augustus – Glashelder verhaal over de noodzaak CO2 uit de lucht te halen, van Walter Reid op de blog van Thomson Reuters Foundation: ‘No path to climate stability without carbon dioxide removal’.
The math of climate change is simple and stark. To keep warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius, we can only emit another 600 Gigatons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. At current rates, this will take 14 years. As a result, almost all scientific analyses assume large amounts of carbon dioxide begin to be removed from the atmosphere in the next decade, and by the second half of the century we must remove much more than we emit.
Dit is de raison d’être van ClimateCleanup.org.
