"We need to remove carbon from the atmosphere now - that’s why the EU is now certifying the removal of carbon”
Dr. Graciela Chichilnisky is co-founder and chief executive of Global Thermostat, and professor of economics at Columbia University. Established in 2010, the company markets a carbon-removal technology that captures and concentrates CO2, to reduce harmful emissions and help close the global carbon cycle. An author of many books, her most recent ‘Reversing Climate Change,’ has transformed the way modern academics view the most dire problem facing mankind, and its economic implications. In this conversation, Graciela describes the new technology – delves into how it works, and their wider mission to help combat climate change; discusses how important it is for more jobs to be created in the clean energy sector, vouching that “jobs are the solution;” and explains why it’s so important for companies to learn-whilst-doing, as this enables them to scale-up and achieve broader targets and goals.
