    "It then extended this to consider how much carbon could be taken out of the atmosphere from Afforestation, Agricultural Soil Carbon Sequestration, Biochar, Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS), Direct Air Capture (DAC), Ocean Liming, Enhanced Weathering, and Ocean Fertilisation. They found that these ‘Negative Emission Technologies’ or NETs could offset between a cumulative total of around 120 gigatonnes of CO2 equivalent between now and 2050. This would only manage to extend the allowable carbon budget by 11-13% consistent with keeping warming below 2 degrees with a 50% to 80% probability."
