Despite the predicted and already felt consequences of climate change, our dependence on fossil fuels shows no signs of wavering. According to the Climate Transparency’s Brown to Green Report 2018, 15 of the G20 nations reported a rise in emissions in 2017. In order to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement, large-scale extraction of carbon dioxide (CO2) seems imperative.
