Description The idea of a slow-moving storm isn’t exactly a new one. Hurricane Harvey in 2017 bore a similar signature. A recent study showed that the speed of tropical cyclones worldwide over land has decreased by ten percent in the last 70 years, between 1949 and 2016. The science isn’t settled on the cause of the slowdowns, but, if these trends continue, hurricanes like Harvey and Florence -- and the devastating flooding they caused -- could become increasingly common.

Description In October, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will release a special report on keeping global temperature rise within 1.5 °C of pre-industrial levels. Governments requested the report at the 2015 Paris climate conference. Policymakers want to know what further steps would be needed to stay well within the 2 °C threshold, above which the risks of climate change become more dangerous. The IPCC report will confirm an open secret: in the light of growing emissions, targets for mitigating climate change increasingly depend on ‘negative emissions technologies’ that suck carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. Staying within 2 °C could mean extracting billions of tonnes of CO2 this century. Atmospheric carbon — captured after burning biofuels, for instance — could be locked in the ground or sea for thousands of years. Forests and soils could be managed to store more carbon. Or more-speculative means that are still in the realm of basic research could be used1. Examples include fertilizing the oceans with iron to enhance phytoplankton growth, increasing the weathering of minerals or developing devices that remove CO2 directly from the air. The vast scale at which such technologies would need to be implemented raises ethical concerns. For example, growing more biomass to burn as fuel would take land away from food production and use water for irrigation2. Famines, civil unrest and damage to biodiversity could follow3. Seeding the oceans with iron could undermine marine ecosystems. Covering an area twice the size of the United States with crushed silicate stones to enhance weathering would affect communities, agriculture and ecosystems. Yet there has been no systematic evaluation of the ethics of carbon removal methods by the climate assessment community or professional philosophers. The IPCC’s latest review (its fifth assessment report) included a chapter on ethics4, setting out concepts of responsibility, justice and welfare. But it did not dwell much on negative emissions technologies, nor did other chapters consider ethics. Carbon removal methods must be ethically evaluated in the context of climate policy pathways.
