Carbon and Agriculture: A Critical Duo

carbon and agriculture

Carbon and agriculture All regions of Europe are vulnerable to climate change, but some regions will be more affected than others. The Southern Hemisphere is predicted to be especially affected by climate change, as this is where the most negative impacts are expected. The region is already experiencing a sharp increase in heat extremes and […]

Subsidies for CO2 Capture Are Wasted Money

Subsidies for CO2 capture

Governments are currently promoting the development of industrial-chemical subsidies for CO2 capture on the premise that this will allow us to continue burning fossil fuels without harming the climate. But, the two most commonly used methods, which taxpayers finance, emit more CO2 into the air than they remove. Carbon capture and storage Carbon capture and […]

How does artificial carbon sequestration work?

artificial carbon sequestration

Artificial is a term that we typically take to mean fake. So why is it being used to prefix a vital process? And how does artificial carbon sequestration work? Indeed, artificial carbon sequestration is a phrase being tossed around all the more frequently these days, be it on the evening news or within classrooms. It […]

What are the best and worst CO2 removal technologies

co2 removal technologies

What are CO2 removal technologies? CO2 removal technologies aim to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.1. They can also be referred to as NETs (negative emissions technologies)2. The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) identified NETs as requisite for limiting global temperature rise to 1.5C without overshooting targets3. The European Academies’ Science Advisory Council have […]

Top 10 Carbon Capture Technology Companies

carbon capture technology companies

Carbon capture technology companies are central to meeting the aims of the Paris Agreement. 195 countries signed the Paris Agreement in 2016, committing them to keeping the global temperature rise to below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to limiting the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Fundamental to curbing the temperature rise is […]

How Many CCS Plants Are There in the World?

ccs plants

Supporters of CCS plants see carbon capture storage as a way for us to use fossil fuels in the short term but still cut our emissions. 1 As a result, world governments are funding a number of carbon capture and sequestration projects,2 but are CCS project funds really the answer to our climate change fight?
