Can we remove carbon from the atmosphere? 'COP Conversations' Series.

Many of our leading researchers have noted that alongside the need for much faster emissions reductions, we need to start pulling CO2 out of the atmosphere. That greenhouse gas removal is essential to achieve net zero carbon emissions, stabilise the climate, and perhaps even to help us orient towards future green jobs and industries. But first, it’s important to understand the natural cycle of carbon – how it flows across the globe – how nature already recycles carbon atoms. And then, what that might teach us about how humans could intervene to actually remove carbon from the atmosphere.
Here to guide us through that is Ros Rickaby, Chair of Geology in Oxford’s Department of Earth Sciences.
