ABSTRACT
The author comments on the call by Michael Ashcroft of the nonprofit Carbon Trust for more research into negative emissions technologies, which would remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. He believes that the world is already at risk of failing to meet a target that is itself inadequate to avoid dangerous climate change. He proposes negative emissions using existing technologies, such as bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS).
