Negatonnes – An initial Assessment of the Potential for negative Emission Techniques to contribute safely and fairly to meeting carbon Budgets in the 21st century

“Because of past failures to mitigate emissions effectively, there is little prospect of safely balancing carbon budgets in the future without the use of techniques which remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (otherwise known as ‘negative emissions techniques’ or NETs) alongside much-accelerated mitigation. But without much-accelerated mitigation, this study suggests there is little if any chance that NETs can fill the gap.”
