Fossil fuel companies know how to stop global warming. Why don't they?
The fossil fuel industry knows how to stop global warming, but they're waiting for someone else to pay, says climate science scholar and Linacre Fellow Myles Allen. Instead of a total ban on carbon-emitting fuels, Allen puts forth a bold plan for oil and gas companies to progressively decarbonize themselves and sequester CO2 deep in the earth, with the aim of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 and creating a carbon dioxide disposal industry that works for everyone.
