Restoring the Carbon Balance – The budget imperative from Security & Sustainability Forum on Vimeo.

The first webinar in the series explores the limited capacity of the Earth’s atmosphere to safely hold excess carbon without too much warming and reviews technology alternatives and social considerations.

The two subsequent webinars will discuss the research investment proposition for the range of Negative Emission Technologies and address the policy, regulatory and economic considerations needed for these disruptive technologies to be scalable in the 20 year timeframe.

We are seeking partner organizations and institutions interested in co-hosting the webinar series and/or willing to invest in balancing the carbon budget. We welcome your feedback on this initiative and are eager to discuss collaborations to further support these emerging technologies.
