Proposed rename[edit]

I propose that this be renamed Negative emissions technologies, as that has become the dominant phrase for this concept. Jesse L Reynolds (talk) 08:28, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

I reject that premise on the basis of poor messaging, confusion within the public sphere (where GHG removal is a term of art, esp. in the UK), and an avoidable conflation of technology with practice: Dr. S. Julio Friedmann

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose to merge Carbon_dioxide_removal into this page, because Carbon dioxide removal is a subcategory of Greenhouse gas removal or of Negative emissions technologies.Jesse L Reynolds (talk) 08:31, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

I reject this premise. Carbon Removal is a well established term of art in the United States, and the subject of two National Academy of Sciences reports. Also, GHG removal is largely speculative in all other dimensions that are not carbon removal. Dr. S. Julio Friedmann — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:34, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
