On Tuesday, September 15, Dr. Graciela Chichilnisky, co-founder and CEO, Global Thermostat, joined other brilliant thinkers for a highly engaging panel discussion – The Science of Climate Restoration – at the Foundation for Climate Restoration’s Second Annual Global Climate Restoration Forum.

The Science of Climate Restoration session featured renowned scientists and researchers discussing the measurable impact and potential that carbon removal technologies have for “cleaning up” the excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The discussion provided an overview of the solutions currently in the market and in development as well as opportunities and challenges as we seek to remove the 95% of legacy carbon in the atmosphere.

Dr. Chichilnisky was joined on the panel by Sir David King, Former United Kingdom Chief Scientific Advisor to HM Government; Tom Chi, Founding Partner, At One Ventures; Founder, Prototype Thinking LLC; and Karl Burkart, Co-Founder and Managing Director of One Earth.

The forum coincided with the United Nations General Assembly and Climate Week, two global events that convene all sectors around sustainability and advancing the Sustainable Development Goals.
