It is becoming clear that cutting our reliance on fossil fuels is no longer enough to address the looming climate crisis. We need to find ways to safely remove and store carbon to achieve “net negative emissions." But it is also imperative that we don’t make a bad situation worse.

Several land- and ocean-based carbon dioxide removal (CDR) strategies have already been proposed that may be able to achieve the scale needed to make a dent in existing emissions. However, moving forward with any CDR strategy hinges on answering two critical questions: 1. Will we be able to durably remove CO2 from the atmosphere; and 2. Will there be ecological consequences that we can accept or that we should avoid?

This panel will address the need for a common code of conduct guiding science to investigate the effectiveness and scalability of any CDR strategy.
