Greenhouse gas removal: How could it help the UK reach net-zero by 2050?


A mix of scientists, economists and government advisers met in London last week to discuss how removing greenhouse gases from air could help the UK hit net-zero emissions by 2050. Over two days, researchers and policy experts debated the scalability of CDR techniques, as well as the potential benefits and drawbacks for UK communities and the country’s ailing wildlife. Carbon Brief was there to take in the scientific presentations, panel discussions and lunchtime chatter and has produced an in-depth summary of the event.
