Dr. Myles Allen on Geological Net Zero: How we will stop fossil fuels from causing global warming

Watch Dr. Myles Allen’s full presentation and audience Q&A:

About the presentation:
If we are to meet our climate goals, net zero must encompass geological net zero, a state in which, for every tonne of carbon dioxide still generated from fossil sources, one tonne is permanently restored to the geosphere, or solid earth. Geological Net Zero is surprisingly affordable, but won’t be delivered by conventional policies like carbon taxes. It calls for a fundamental rethink of the role and obligations of the fossil fuel industry itself.
