Human Rights Dimensions of Bioenergy With Carbon Capture and Storage: A Framework for Climate Justice in the Realm of Climate Geoengineering
- Aug 29, 2020 12:09 am GMT
This chapter proposes a framework for operationalizing the Paris Agreement’s human rights language in the context of an emerging potential response to climate change, bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS). BECCS seeks to reduce concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere in a process by which biomass is converted to heat, electricity, or liquid or gas fuels, coupled with CO2 capture and sequestration (CCS), whereby CO2 is stored terrestrially or in the ocean. BECCS is denominated a “negative emissions technology” because it can effectuate a permanent net removal of CO2, as opposed to processes that merely reduce emissions to the atmosphere.

This week, Policy Dispatch takes a look into Africa’s energy transition, the main hurdles that the continent’s 54 nations are facing, and its untapped renewable potential with Saliem Fakir, Executive Director at the African Climate Foundation.
According to Robert Jensen - we're prepping for the wrong thing. It's not about whether we should use renewables instead of fossil fuels or EVs instead of ICE cars. No. We should be preparing ourselves - for those of us that survive - for what..
