Our Future Planet: Global Greenhouse Gas Removal
Hear leading scientists and environmental journalists explore the many aspects of carbon capture, including reforestation, and rewilding as well as a range of industrial methods.
As well as reducing our CO2 emissions, capturing carbon from the atmosphere could be another way to limit climate change. We’ll be discussing whether this approach offers a solution to the unfolding climate crisis or if it simply offers a false sense of security.
A discussion of the practicalities, pitfalls and opportunities will coincide with the opening of the Science Museum’s new exhibition Our Future Planet.
