Climate is one of the most pressing areas that we are all aware of ever since the global Fridays for Future movement. Depending on the extent of global warming, we must expect an abundance of threats rooted to climate change. Amongst those are food and water shortages, large scale displacements of vulnerable populations, and decreased global stability. Apart from impacts on mankind, climate change is also likely to induce extreme harm to biodiversity and environmental disasters.
Tradewater is a charity that has just been recently established in 2016. It aims to find cost-effective opportunities to buy up and destroy greenhouse gases in large scale in order to prevent them from being released into the atmosphere. The destruction of 1 tonne of C02e (CO2 equivalent) by Tradewater currently costs around $15. They have been able to eliminate 4.7m tonnes of CO2 thus far, which corresponds to the annual power production for 800,000 houses. While many of the dangerous gases that are up to 10,000 times more potent than regular carbon dioxide are nowadays prohibited to be further produced, there is still an abundance of existing emissions that must be dealt with. Tradewater's processes are externally verified, such that the successful destruction is ensured.
