Climate change is set to inflict “severe, widespread, and irreversible impacts”
on people and the natural world unless carbon emissions are cut
sharply and rapidly.

Atmospheric CO2 concentration, at a 20 million year high, is accelerating faster than ever.
Black line is seasonally
adjusted atmospheric CO2 (NOAA)
Atmospheric methane (CH4) has increased 254% and is increasing extremely fast.
Black line is mean
There is no proven method of CO2 removal at any scale - though this is now unavoidable.The working prototype of the best and safest method is mechanical air removal with chemical conversion to solid carbonate.Rapid REPLACEMENT of all world fossil fuel energy by clean, zero-carbon energy must and can start immediately.
