Real and false solutions: "negative emissions" technologies can put human rights and 1.5°C at risk
Paris created the political will for climate action but didn’t provide confidence of limiting warming to 1.5° C without the use of negative emissions technologies. We will examine the risks of geoengineering and explore solutions that work within planetary boundaries while protecting human rights.
