As a global society, our fossil fuel use has resulted in atmospheric CO2 concentrations much greater than at any other time during the last 650,000 years. Until now, our best approach was simply to avoid such emissions. But because of our failure to act quickly and at large scale, we now must go beyond that strategy and remove CO2 directly from the air. Trees and oceans already do this, but these systems are overwhelmed. Manufactured or synthetic removal systems are designed to pull CO2 from the atmosphere at a much faster rate. This talk reviews both the promise and pitfalls of this approach.
