Grounded – Beyond Flygskam

This report is a study of some of those who have stopped flying, in order to learn how they have handled the goal conflicts involved in their decision.

Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage

Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage

This book is the first to bring together a broad range of policy-relevant perspectives on negative emissions and, in particular, on bioenergy with carbon capture and storage: global modeling, climate diplomats’ views, European and national climate policymaking, and early attempts at using carbon dioxide removal approaches in urban district heating systems. The book’s value lies not only in the range of issues covered, but even more so in discussing the practical challenges and potential opportunities for policymakers and businesses.
