carbon moonshots

There's $10 billion of capital sitting in the room, and I'm following the smart executive director of Drawdown, and clarity of Noah Deich from Carbon 180. At one point I see Chris Sacca staring back at me, what!

On Thursday night at Carbon, I had the honor to present 3 carbon moonshot technologies to remove 10+ GT of carbon: underground carbon vaults, ocean carbon to fuels, and cell free synthetic biology.

After the talk, so many people came up with questions, ideas, and sharing the radical stuff they're working on.

When successful, a moonshot changes the course of civilization. If it explodes on the launch pad instead, it inspires us to dream. Whether we aim for 1 gigaton of carbon or a single gram removed, moonshots matter.

How do you deal with presenting a crazy idea to your colleagues?


I write a weekly newsletter highlighting my journey, sharing everything you should know about opportunities in the new carbon economy.

Every week you’ll get insider information on what’s possible in the cutting edge of negative emissions through my personal journey creating an air mining company, and share lessons learned.

My newsletter is the best way to follow what I'm up to.
