Throughout the decades, we’ve toyed with various solutions for climate change. Definitely from nature-based solutions like afforestation, to renewable energy solutions, like solar power. Unfortunately, none of these solutions have developed enough. Which are due to financial or political pushback, to be a viable solution. We must limit global warming to 1.5 degrees above preindustrial levels, we need to act quickly. This is with the IPCC reporting.
Direct air capture, or DAC, is a technology that allows us to capture CO2 from the air and turn it into products or fuel – or, store it underground and effectively reverse climate change. No other option has been able to provide the potential to actually remove carbon, making DAC a unique and exciting option. Yet we may run into familiar issues – we need more financial support to scale DAC to a viable solution. Read on to find out how DAC works, what the benefits and drawbacks are, and where it stands today.

This is a very well-researched and informative article! a must-read!
I also came across the latest cutting-edge technology, a mechanical tree that absorbs CO2 1000x faster than actual trees! One step closer to reaching net-zero emissions.
