Closing the gap

Why we need both carbon reduction and carbon removal

Since 1750, we have caused global warming by adding 1.6T tonnes of CO2 to the air and oceans. We emit another 40B tonnes annually.

We can only prevent the worst impacts of climate change if we limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial era levels.

But because of these historic and ongoing emissions, we are on a track to exceed 1.5°C of warming by 2050.

To address global warming, we need to both reduce annual emissions and remove historic emissions.
