Stringent climate change targets, including lowering the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere, will require both a decline in global emissions of CO2 and an increase in CO2 removal. CO2 removal describes an array of natural and technological strategies that capture and remove CO2 from the air and store it semi-permanently in some form. At this month’s Midday Science Cafe, we’ll hear from researchers who study just a few CO2 removal strategies under consideration.
