3. Restoring the Carbon Balance: The Technologies
February 1, 2016, 1:00 to 2:30 PM EST at http://bit.ly/2gMlfVB.
The capacity of the Earth's atmosphere to safely hold excess carbon without too much warming is 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. However, NETs are still in the research, development or demonstration stages of commercialization and may not be ready in time, or feasible at the necessary scale. Join ASU-GIS & SSF, where leading experts will address the research, policies, economics and accountability needed to restore the Carbon Budget.
