Play • 18 min

In this special news round-up of the Future Positive podcast we’re talking all things XPRIZE Carbon Removal – our new $100M Prize for a technology that removes carbon from the atmosphere, halting climate change in the process. 


First, XPRIZE’s Chief Impact Officer Zenia Tata, one of the primary designers of XPRIZE Carbon Removal, runs through one of the most common reactions to the Prize announcement – “But what about trees!” – explaining why trees are no longer enough when it comes to offsetting our emissions.  Thought-leader and climate expert Marcius Extavour brings us up to speed on the exciting potential for turning carbon into products. 

Plus, we caught up with comedian and self-proclaimed inventor Duncan Trussell about the crazy ideas that the Prize has already sparked online. Including a contraption to turn carbon into mini hot dogs. You heard it here first!
