Climate Change Negotiations – UNFCCC, COP, Other Conventions and Protocols

1.5 degrees target is too ambitious- policy & technology perspective- II

  1. Sequestration: In this scenario, even a 2 C target is out of reach unless engineers find ways to suck CO2 out of the air and store it underground, so-called negative emissions
  2. Issue: However, the problem with these technologies is that few of them have moved beyond the experimental stage, and those that have may pose new quandaries
  3. Biofuels: Schemes that depend on biofuels compete with food crops
  4. Issue: And if these are scaled up sufficiently to make a real dent in CO2 levels, food production must double in the next 30 years to keep up with an expanding world population
  5. Solution: Radical changes will be required, not just technical but also new values and norms
