To really start addressing climate change, we need to not only drastically reduce our current carbon dioxide emissions, but also start capturing past emissions from the atmosphere. There is no consensus on what would be the best solution: is it regenerative agriculture, carbon mineralization, agroforestry, biochar, marine permaculture, carbon farming, capture and storage or capture and use? Or something else that has yet to be invented? At SCA we believe that, for complex problems, the solutions will be multiple, and we are likely to need to develop different approaches working in tandem to meet the capture targets for a healthy Earth. For the next three months, we will be doing a deep dive into carbon capture methods, researching benefits and drawbacks of each and talking to the leaders bringing the most inspiring projects to life. Dive in with us!

To Reduce Our Carbon Footprint, We Need Another Kind of Extinction Rebellion

 “The world’s richest ten percent are responsible for an estimated 47 percent share of global CO2 emissions,” writes Florian Zandt at Statista. This is the result of a recent study published in the journal Nature Sustainability. The study focused on how alleviating poverty worldwide would impact carbon emissions.

Is Sucking Carbon Out of the Air the Solution to Our Climate Crisis? Or Just Another Big Oil Boondoggle?

In British Columbia, there’s a little valley where the Squamish River snakes down past the cliffs of the Malamute, a popular hiking spot. The hills in all directions are, like much of BC, thickly forested with firs. And nestled in that valley is a newfangled industrial plant that aims to replicate what those millions of trees do: suck carbon dioxide out of the air.

Carbon Capture Can Be Part of the Climate Solution

Fossil fuel companies tout carbon capture as a way to shore up their own profits. But the technology holds the potential for good — helping us to save the planet, and ourselves, from ecological catastrophe.

Carbon Capture and Beyond

To go Beyond Carbon Capture and to change the destructive trajectory we are on, we need to connect the ecological, economic, political, cultural, and scientific dots. As a global community, we have just started to come up with solutions for that challenging task.
