Show Notes

Earth's oceans play a key role in slowing climate change, absorbing nearly a third of anthropogenic CO2 emissions.

And they could, potentially, absorb more.

In this episode, Climate Now explores developing methods to enhance ocean-based carbon dioxide removal. What do we know about each technique, and what are the associated risks?

Learn more in our conversation with Dr. Wil Burns, visiting professor at Northwestern University's Environmental Policy and Culture Program and emeritus co-founding director of the Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy at American University.
