3 ways we could store carbon in the ocean – without harming it

-As the need for climate action becomes more urgent, the ocean is gaining attention as a potential part of the solution.

-The ocean could help us reduce global temperature rise, by capturing and storing carbon.

-Proposed methods include biological, chemical and electrochemical approaches.

To meet the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting temperature rise to 1.5 degrees C (2.7 degrees F), greenhouse gas emissions must reach net-zero by mid-century. Achieving this will not only require reducing existing emissions, but also removing carbon dioxide already in the air.

How much carbon to remove from the atmosphere will depend on emissions in the coming years, but estimates point to around 10-20 billion tons of CO2 per year through 2100, globally. This is a tremendous amount, considering that the United States emitted 5.4 billion tons of CO2 in 2018.
