Net-zero refers to the balance between the amount of greenhouse gas produced and the amount removed from the atmosphere. While this has been incorporated by governments and corporations to keep the rising global temperature under 1.5 degrees Celsius, the concept has been critiqued by multiple climate scientists for a number of reasons.
Addressing the possible outcomes of this concept, Prof Soumyajit Bhar – Visiting Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at Krea – pens an important piece for ‘Down to Earth’ Magazine on the importance of collectively charting pathways to reduce our consumption demands and the need to adopt non-materialistic ways to seek human fulfilment.
