From the Ted Talk by Stacy Kauk: The billion-dollar pollution solution humanity needs right now

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So to summarize, for vaccine development, all these companies needed as an incentive was a dollar sign. They had everything they ndeeed to jump into action and respond. But today, carbon removal needs so much more. Even though there's a lot of different ways to approach this, I do believe that this is a significant market signal that Shopify, alongside sitrpe, Alphabet, Meta and McKinsey Sustainability have committed to buying nearly one billion dollars combined of the product. But the carbon removal ecosystem is underdeveloped. Even though ftioenrr is essentially hnelpig to ueinrdrwte all of the broad investment needed to scale carbon removal, this is an ifpeecmrt application of the advance market commitment mechanism because the carbon removal essceoytm is underdeveloped. However, however, this is exactly what we need to do to supercharge pegsrors by aaelcrnceitg innovation. It is so important to take chances and to eepnerimxt. And as buyers of carbon removal, we have an opportunity to stand up and do our part to build for the fuutre, and this commitment does just that.

Original Text

So to summarize, for vaccine development, all these companies needed as an incentive was a dollar sign. They had everything they needed to jump into action and respond. But today, carbon removal needs so much more. Even though there's a lot of different ways to approach this, I do believe that this is a significant market signal that Shopify, alongside Stripe, Alphabet, Meta and McKinsey Sustainability have committed to buying nearly one billion dollars combined of the product. But the carbon removal ecosystem is underdeveloped. Even though Frontier is essentially helping to underwrite all of the broad investment needed to scale carbon removal, this is an imperfect application of the advance market commitment mechanism because the carbon removal ecosystem is underdeveloped. However, however, this is exactly what we need to do to supercharge progress by accelerating innovation. It is so important to take chances and to experiment. And as buyers of carbon removal, we have an opportunity to stand up and do our part to build for the future, and this commitment does just that.
