Carbon Removal Technologies May Hinder Climate Efforts
The world’s first commercial plant to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere went online last May in the Swiss countryside. It’s one of several carbon dioxide removal (CDR) strategies companies are deploying to help confront climate change. But could the knowledge that such strategies are possible pose a risk to climate mitigation efforts broadly? A team of researchers from the University of Chicago and University of Michigan discovered the answer is ‘yes.’ Their study appears in this month's Climatic Change.
