Engaging in a global-scale tree planting effort.
Adding nutrients to the ocean in selected locations to increase primary production which draws down carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Grinding up, dispersing, and dissolving rocks such as limestone, silicates, or calcium hydroxide in the ocean to increase its ability to store carbon and directly ameliorate ocean acidification.
Techniques aim to reflect a small
proportion of the Sun's energy back
into space, counteracting the
temperature rise caused by
increased levels of greenhouse gases
Introducing small, reflective particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect some sunlight before it reaches the surface of the Earth.
'Charring' biomass and burying it so that its carbon is locked up in the soil.
Ambient air capture
Building large machines that can remove carbon dioxide directly from ambient air and store it elsewhere.
Increasing the reflectiveness of clouds or the land surface so that more of the Sun's heat is reflected back into space.
Bio-energy with carbon capture
Growing biomass, burning it to
create energy and capturing and
sequestering the carbon dioxide
created in the process.
Carbon dioxide removal
Techniques that attempt to remove
carbon from the atmosphere
Solar Radiation Management
Blocking a small proportion of
sunlight before it reaches the Earth.
Exposing large quantities of minerals
that will react with carbon dioxide in
the atmosphere and storing the
resulting compound in the ocean or
