Understanding Negative Emissions Technologies

Understanding Negative Emissions Technologies

The limited information now in circulation about negative emissions technologies (NETs) threatens to lead policy makers and other decision makers down the wrong path. IPCC models and state mitigation pledges under the Paris agreement assume widespread use of NETs. However, there is great uncertainty about these technologies’ feasibility and cost. Further, environmental NGOs and climate advocates are largely absent from the growing conversation on NETs, as they consider how to fit this new category of climate response into their communications strategies.

The Forum for Climate Engineering Assessment (FCEA) works to close these gaps, to give policymakers the knowledge of NETs that they need to make informed decisions about mitigation policy and to encourage climate advocates to participate in critical assessment of NETs.
