Climate Opportunities: Eli Mitchell-Larson, Oxford Researcher, Entrepreneur & Impact Investor
Carbon capture & sequestration - A business opportunity?
Eli is working to achieve the as-of-yet-unthinkable goal of a negative carbon future. Climate change is driving changes on shorelines around the world and there is a growing consensus that we must act and act boldly. The resistance to change is real and there are no easy steps ahead. Eli joins Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham to talk through this complex issue from a unique perspective, including the business opportunities ahead as we transform the economy to a lower carbon emission future. Surprisingly, the oil and gas industry will likely play a major role in carbon capture and sequestration. At least temporarily, CoVid-19 is slowing down the economy world-wide and the Earth and its creatures are getting a bit of a breather from our relentless pursuit of more. That's not the answer to our ever-increasing carbon emissions but oddly it shows that at least short-term dramatic changes can occur. Does it give us a taste of a different future? Maybe.
