Introduction to Carbon Removal Technologies for Climate Mitigation
Here is a succinct yet comprehensive primer on carbon dioxide removal (CDR)*. This short video presentation, was prepared and narrated by CDR researcher Richard Matthews. After reviewing the three major categories of CDR (natural climate solutions, carbon capture and direct air capture) Richard explains that while CDR has become critical to climate mitigation efforts, we need to deploy a suite of critical strategies if we are to succeed in keeping temperatures below critical upper limit thresholds. The presentation concludes with a brief summary of education as a factor contributing to the widespread deployment of CDR and factors like disinformation that threaten to undermine the uptake of CDR.
*Sometimes referred to as negative emissions technologies (NETs) or greenhouse gas reduction (GGR).
