The capacity of the Earth’s atmosphere to safely hold excess carbon without too much warming is very limited. Unless that pace is dramatically accelerated, the planet will almost certainly exceed its “carbon budget” within two decades, if it hasn’t already. This concern has led the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to conclude that Negative Emissions Technologies (NETs), which remove CO2 from the air, will be needed to meet climate goals. Join Arizona State University's Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability and the Security and Sustainability Forum in the second of a three-part series on “Restoring the Carbon Budget” where leading experts will address the NETS technologies and the status of the research to develop and commercialize them.
