Murtugudde Calls for Carbon Dioxide Removal in Newsweek

Raghu Murtugudde, ESSIC / AOSC Professor, recently penned an Op-Ed in Newsweek calling for the implementation of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) instruments and other climate engineering methods to slow down global warming.

The article is in response to a recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that stated that climate goals cannot be achieved without actively removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Through the piece, Murtugudde outlines several climate intervention techniques that he hopes will spur greater global action to this issue.

Raghu Murtugudde is an ESSIC / AOSC Professor and Affiliate Professor for the Department of Geology currently serving as a Visiting Professor in Bombay, India.  He works primarily in climate studies, exploring the co-evolution of life and climate and what it means for sustainability.  He also writes a blog hosted on the ESSIC website.
