Our planet is out of balance
Since 1880, our atmosphere has warmed by 1.1º C due to human activity.1 The consequences are already hazardous: record heat waves, intensified storms, droughts, and mass extinctions of plants and animals.
We must limit warming to 1.5ºC to mitigate the worst impacts of climate change — the first step toward rebalancing the planet.
All three approaches are necessary
Every country, organization, and person must reduce their carbon emissions as much and as rapidly as possible. This is the most important step. No plan will be successful without dramatic emissions reductions.
Our planet has built-in systems to regulate the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. By restoring the balance of our oceans, forests, and landmass, we can rely on these natural systems to help bring the planet back to balance.
We’ll need engineered carbon removal projects like Direct Air Capture (DAC) alongside long-lived, durable sequestration solutions. We already have technology to do this, but we’ll need to scale it up quickly.
