Roughly 1,300 times more carbon dioxide removal from new technologies — and twice as much from trees and soils — are needed by 2050 to limit temperatures, scientists say.
Despite wild cards of pandemic recovery and an energy crisis provoked by conflict in Ukraine, uptick in carbon pollution from burning oil, gas and coal is consistent with underlying trends, data suggests.
Webb captures first clear evidence of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere of WASP-39 B, a gas giant closely orbiting a Sun-like star 700 light years away, NASA says.
The $3.5 billion plan will fund four major programmes that include a variety of projects to capture carbon dioxide from the air and factories and then store it, says the Department of Energy.
