To combat climate change, in addition to reducing emissions, we will also need to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Ocean CDR (ocean carbon dioxide removal) is a set of strategies to sequester carbon dioxide in ocean waters. Speakers will discuss social acceptance, environmental governance, and other issues around ocean CDR strategies. The webinar will include discussion of the new National Academies report, A Research Strategy for Ocean-based Carbon Dioxide Removal and Sequestration.
The conversation will be webcast on the Climate Conversations: Ocean Carbon Dioxide Removal webpage on Thursday, January 20, 2022 from 3-4pm ET. Closed captioning will be provided. The conversation will include questions from the audience, and will be recorded and available to view on the page after the event. Speakers will be announced soon.
Climate Conversations: Pathways to Action is a monthly webinar series from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine that aims to convene high-level, cross-cutting, nonpartisan conversations about issues relevant to national policy action on climate change.
