New Call to Boost Carbon Dioxide Removal

January 20, 2023

Efforts to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, including use of so-called direct air capture, aren’t being ramped up fast enough to meet climate goals for limiting global temperature rises, according to a new international report. To drive greater efforts in the United States, Evvan Morton and her colleagues write in Issues, government should do more to demonstrate the feasibility of carbon dioxide removal technologies and to set policies to guide how and where they should be used, who should be responsible for or benefit economically from the removal, and how to manage any unexpected harm resulting from these efforts.
