Nemet, colleagues review negative emission technologies for reducing CO2

In three comprehensive studies, an international consortium of 20 researchers, including the La Follette School’s Greg Nemet and Sophia Rogers, found a major gap in climate change dialogue between science and policy. The journal Environmental Research Letters recently published results of the studies by researchers at La Follette, the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC), and others.

In the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change, the international community committed itself to limiting global warming to “well below two degrees Celsius.” Limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees will make the world increasingly dependent on negative emission technologies (NETs); however, technology development is considerably lagging the deployment assumed in climate mitigation scenarios, the researchers said.
