Q. With reference to net zero emission consider the following statements:
1.It means completely ending the greenhouse gas emission into the atmosphere.
2.The carbon removal process can help in achieving net zero emissions.
Select the correct statement using the codes given below:

[A] 1 only

[B] 2 only

[C] Both 1 and 2

[D] Neither 1 nor 2

Answer: B

Statement 1: The statement is incorrect. Net zero means cutting greenhouse gas emissions to as close to zero as possible, with any remaining emissions re-absorbed from the atmosphere, by oceans and forests for instance. It means balancing the emission by absorbing it and making it neutral.

Statement 2: The carbon removal process can help in achieving net zero emissions.
