Carbon removal needs to quadruple to meet climate goals, researchers say

Reuters reports on the 2024 State of Carbon Dioxide Report, which found that 7-9 billion tons of CO2 must be removed from the atmosphere every year if the world is to meet its climate targets. "Global net greenhouse gas emissions were about 55 billion tonnes per year in 2022, and emissions accumulate in the atmosphere, so every year, every action counts," said co-author Professor Gregory Nemet.
