The article from Seedbox researchers Anders Hansson, Jonas Anshelm, Mathias Fridahl and Simon Haikola, has been published in Frontiers.

The new article, Boundary work and interpretations in the IPCC review process of the role of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) in limiting global warming to 1.5°C, from researchers in the Seedbox project Understanding negotiations: Opening up the black box of conceptualizing complexities and uncertainties in climate sciences, has been accepted in Frontiers.

From the abstract:

“Paris Agreement-compatible emissions pathways produced by integrated assessment models (IAMs) often rely on large amounts of CDR, especially afforestation and bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS). These pathways feature prominently in the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), to the extent that the IAMs have been granted an interpretative privilege at the interface between climate science, economics, and policymaking. The privilege extends to and influences climate governance, including governance of BECCS. This paper contributes to recent debates about the role of the IPCC, and its framing of BECCS, at the science-policy interface.”
