Grabbing on to carbon removal
One thing that stood out to me was Climeworks CEO Jan Wurzbacher's vision:
“You fly over here to Europe,” he explained, “and the app tells you that you have just burned 1.7 tons of CO₂. Do you want to remove that? Well, Climeworks can remove it for you. Click here. We’ll charge your credit card. And then you’ll get a stone made from CO₂ for every ton you sequester.” He sat back and sighed. “That would be my dream,” he said.
Our "air carbon" planters are a symbol of that vision. It's exciting when carbon dioxide is tangible and you hold in your hands. Here are reactions of people living the dream, photos below.
