In its most recent report, the IPCC once again stated that in addition to decarbonising the world economy, we are likely to need a significant push to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere if we are to meet the 1.5 degrees target. In addition to the required technological developments, it is important that we also create effective governance approaches. With this in mind, Kate was joined by Wil Burns for a special edition of the Climate Discourse podcast to discuss the fascinating science and legal complexities of carbon removal law. They were joined by Romany Web to talk about a series of papers she published on the law of enhanced weathering for carbon dioxide removal. This is the first episode in a series highlighting some of the most important research in this area.
