An introduction to mining 1 trillion tons of CO2 from the air
Tito Jankowski
We need to remove something like 1 trillion tons of CO2 from the atmosphere put there by humans over the last century since burning fossil fuels for energy began. This task is the equivalent of disposing of 500 billion automobiles, where the planet only has just over one billion on the roads today.

This is an introduction to air mining for the climate curious ー read about why it needs to happen, what others are doing, and what's missing.

I wrote this guide to help out people getting interested in air mining, carbon removal, and direct air capture.
