- What happens if carbon dioxide removal (CDR) strategies are unsuccessful? Many net-zero ambitions count on being able to “abate” CO2, either through carbon dioxide capture technologies, or offsetting actions such as planting trees. Neil Grant and Dr. Ajay Gambhir from the Grantham Institute at Imperial College, London have modeled the impact of CDR failure. Eye opening.
- The EU has just set a binding target of 55% GHG reduction (compared to 1990 levels) by 2030, with a goal of being carbon neutral by 2050.
- Across the EU, average CO2 emissions from new passenger vehicles decreased by 12% in 2020. The primary reason? Sales of EVs tripled.
