Since 2013 the estimate of tonnes of carbon dioxide being added to the atmosphere is between 36 – 40 billion tonnes per year.
With an average of 33 billion tonnes per year – there are different companies who have engineered solutions to extract tonnes of carbon dioxide. Different solutions can vary between $90 per tonne to around $600 per tonne.
In total the cost would be
$19.8 trillion with a $600 cost per tonne (and not including data about whether the extraction causes any additional carbon dioxide to return again to the atmosphere – I don’t know enough yet)
For UK/US – trillion represented with short scale:
For Europe and I don’t know where else with long scale:
For $100 cost it’s $3.3 trillion i.e.
We are covering maths and science notation to represent this as e.g n=10^n
A lot of whatever currency anyway. And based on the rates of warming and many other factors – how much does the planet need up there and how much will undo existing damage on a yearly average.
Will no doubt be returning to this soon.
