Fellow NETers - FYI.Greg

AGU Town Hall 
Negative emissions technologies: New developments and scientific challenges

Join us for a rigorous discussion about the technical, social, and ethical 
issues related to NETS and future research priorities

TIME AND PLACE: 
Monday December 12, 12:30-13:30. 
Moscone West  Room 2011

ABSTRACT: 
Negative emissions technologies (NETs) encompass a wide range of approaches 
that either transfer atmospheric CO2 into a storage compartment separate from 
the atmosphere or reduce leakiness of existing natural carbon storage. A 
variety of NETs have been proposed. Enhancing the potential magnitude, 
sustainability, and affordability of these approaches poses significant 
scientific and policy challenges. Come to this town hall to learn about new 
initiatives on NETs, to share what you are doing, and discuss priorities and 
opportunities for future action.
