The ocean twilight zone could store vast amounts of carbon captured from the atmosphere, but first we need a 4D monitoring system to ensure ramping up carbon storage does no harm.
The UK is focusing on carbon capture and storage technologies but the future is uncertain.
Here’s what I’ve learned from researching the history of UK climate policy.
The environmental awards gave cash to climate scientists, conservationists and inventors.
From planting mangroves to dumping minerals in the ocean, there are lots of ideas for ocean carbon dioxide removal – and even more questions.
The Danish capital reneged on its net zero target after an incinerator failed to secure state aid.
Opening up new fossil fuel exploration will damage our longer-term security and undermine our climate imperatives. It is dangerous for the planet.
One estimate suggests at least a sixth of all emissions cuts expected from the Inflation Reduction Act would come from carbon capture.
A climate scientist looks at what works and some popular ideas that aren’t as cheap or effective as people hope.
The road map for a more sustainable future starts with clean energy and fossil-fuel-free transportation.
We calculate that this project will add about 41 megatonnes per year to Australia’s national emissions from around 2030.
Research shows large-scale reliance on carbon capture risks postponing climate action too far into the future.
Using our oceans as carbon sinks could help achieve climate goals set in the most recent IPCC report.
From pulling carbon dioxide out of the air to turning water into fuel, innovators are developing new technologies and pairing existing ones to help slow global warming.
A tax credit for companies that invest in carbon capture technology would divert financing away from cheaper and safer climate solutions.
Groundwater is the second-largest store of water on Earth. Governments and industry use groundwater reservoirs to store waste, but it may also have environmental functions that haven’t been revealed.
Carbon capture technologies have been labelled as a distraction. But as we enter the all-hands-on-deck phase of tackling climate change, they must not be ignored.
Critics say investing in carbon capture and storage means betting on technology that’s not yet proven to work at scale. Using liquid marbles could make a huge difference.
Soaking up and storing CO₂ is not just a question of technology.
But the government will use the legislation for the fund to try to wedge Labor.
