More than a bracelet
August 30, 2019
As you know, I'm lightly interested in carbon removal...
By 2050, the climate big-wigs (IPCC
) say we need to remove 10 thousand million tons
of carbon dioxide from the air every year. From my work with AirMiners
, I know that current capacity with Direct Air Capture is more like 100 tons per year.
That's why we're launching a Kickstarter campaign on October 1st. This is a campaign to increase the planet's capacity to pull carbon from the air by signaling there's demand for captured carbon products. At the center is a first of its kind product, a bracelet made with captured carbon called Negative.
Of course, this bracelet isn't the solution to the climate crisis. But it's a step towards the solution, and we think there's other people out there like us that want to join in. If we sell, say, 1,000 Negative bracelets, we pave the road for the infrastructure to create many more captured carbon products.
It's already taking off. Negative is launching as a celebrated project for Kickstarter's new Shapeshift
initiative on October 1st. And I can't wait to speak about the campaign at TEDx San Francisco
(October 3) and VERGE Carbon
I write a weekly newsletter highlighting the AirMiners community and carbon removal industry.
Every week you’ll get insider perspective and community stories from the cutting edge of carbon removal.
The purpose of this newsletter is to accelerate the carbontech industry by speeding up connections, progress, and coordination. It's ideal for people working in carbon removal already, or beginners who want one individual's perspective. People curious about carbon removal are encouraged to sign up and see what sticks.
