Last week, Carbon180 hosted a webinar titled Zero, Then Negative, spun out of our eponymous congressional policy blueprint. We welcomed an expert panel of the boldest thinkers in carbon removal, including Microsoft’s carbon program manager Elizabeth Willmott, Stripe’s head of climate Nan Ransohoff, Carbon180’s deputy director of policy Ugbaad Kosar, and the Department of Energy’s principal deputy assistant secretary for fossil energy and carbon management Dr. Jennifer Wilcox. We heard Senator Martin Heinrich’s (D — NM) call for research and policies that support not only net-zero goals, but net-negative climate action.

The panelists discussed how to scale a variety of carbon removal solutions, where RD&D must still fill in gaps, and how to ensure carbon removal supports communities. A recording is below.
