truthout: Techno-Optimism and Bad Science in Paris: The Problem With Carbon Capture and Storage

„The[nbsp]negotiating text in Paris contains proposed text about „zero net emission,“ based on the assumption that actual emissions can be neutralized by future „negative“ ones. This is based on conclusions in[nbsp]the 2014 report of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). According to that report, most relevant models predict that „negative emissions“ in the form of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) would be required later this century if we are to avoid more than 2 degrees Celsius of warming.“
