Policymakers are pouring money into techno-fixes to solve the climate crisis, even though scientific studies indicate nature-based solutions are all-around more effective.
Many climate plans rely on carbon capture and storage in some capacity to limit warming. But Chevron’s latest struggles with an Australian project cast doubt on CCS as a reliable solution.
"The rate of rise in the last decade has been faster than previous decades."
The CO2 Coalition denies the evidence that humans are causing dangerous climate change and runs with the tag line “CO2 – Essential for Life.”
Emissions from fossil-fuel consumption have remained at historically high levels since 2011 and are expected to spike.
Climate scientists like me need to be clear about the global danger. Putting a price on CO2 would slow warming more effectively than any other policy tool we have available.
