How to remove a billion tons of carbon dioxide by 2030

April 29, 2023


At our first ever town hall on Monday, 133 Air Miners shared "What would empower you to remove a billion tons of carbon by 2030?"

Here's what we heard:

Get these done and we're unlocking the possibility of removing a billion tons of carbon. Let's get to it!

So, how do we transform these words into actions?

Here's an example of action just this week: Buyers Demo Day

Result: 24 Buyers came and made 65 requests for introductions to the seven startups that pitched!

And 13 of the registrants were new buyers including H&M, Kickstarter, and Autodesk. Let's go! It's amazing what comes out of these sessions. In a breakout room a DAC startup in Kenya met a potential buyer in Atlanta -- and it turns out the Kenyan startup team is going to be in Atlanta by chance next month so they're meeting up in person.

This is how we get empowered to remove carbon, to transform ideas into reality.

Next, let's work with the rest of the list above.

What is it that you said would empower you? How are you going to take action on it? Are there any actions that you've already taken this week already?

If your action involves a new idea, or something that you need, or a lead you can share with others, come join our first Ideas, Needs, and Leads session.


P.S. THE MIDNIGHT MEETING is our first ever meeting at midnight Pacific time. It's an "ideas, needs, and leads" session designed for those on a Europe/Africa/Middle East/India timezone PLUS those who like to stay up late in the Americas. "DJ Grillo" and I will both be there, more West Coast AirMiners welcome too, make it a party. When was the last time you attended a meeting at midnight anyway? Join here

I'm on a mission to remove a billion tons of carbon dioxide by 2030. As part of that, I write a weekly newsletter of tangible actions to remove one billion tons of carbon dioxide by 2030.

The purpose of this newsletter is to accelerate carbon removal by speeding up connections, progress, and coordination. It's ideal for people working in carbon removal already or beginners who are excited to dive in and get my perspective. People curious about carbon removal are welcome to sign up and see what sticks.
