The Center for Carbon Removal: Reduce, recycle, remove: what waste management can teach us about controlling carbon emissions

„Each year, the world produces around ten billion tons of trash. A significant portion of this trash ends up as litter, polluting our cities, water, and ecosystems, and resulting in significant costs to the environment and society. In response, society deploys a three-pronged strategy to fight litter: 1) reduce waste production, 2) recycle as much of the remaining waste as possible, and 3) remove the rest in sealed landfills that protect the environment from the consequences of this pollution.“
