The environments in which we work and live directly affect our comfort and productivity.

Throughout the decades, we’ve toyed with various solutions for climate change - from nature-based solutions like aforestation, to renewable energy solutions, like solar power. Unfortunately, none of these solutions have developed enough, due to financial or political pushback, to be a viable solution. With the IPCC reporting that we must limit global warming to 1.5 degrees above preindustrial levels, we need to act quickly. Direct air capture, or DAC, is a technology that allows us to capture CO2 from the air and turn it into products or fuel - or, store it underground and effectively reverse climate change. No other option has been able to provide the potential to actually remove carbon, making DAC a unique and exciting option. Yet we may run into familiar issues - we need more financial support to scale DAC to a viable solution. Read on to find out how DAC works, what the benefits and drawbacks are, and where it stands today.The Interagency Working Group has released the Initial Report to the President with updates on Executive Order 14008 - Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad.In the report, we find a list of prioritized communities most affected by our shift to clean energy and a thorough plan that outlines how the government will provide funding for jobs to fuel the economy and repair the environment. With over $37 billion in immediately available funding, the Working Group has a chance to make a huge impact on the lives of people in priority communities as well as our environment. One question remains - are we doing enough to fight climate change?
