A proverbial “Carbon Sink” to help explain CDR

Carbon dioxide removal (“CDR”) — or removing carbon from the atmosphere with “negative emission technologies” — can seem like a complex and confusing topic when explained in the academic language common among many of the field’s proponents. But the reasons why CDR is important in the fight against climate change are actually fairly simple. To illustrate the need for CDR, I’ve drawn up a basic CDR infographic using a “carbon sink” as a analog to the Earth’s atmosphere:
