Get lucky with a free trip to Iceland, meet the CarbonCatchers filmmakers & learn what vaccine development has to do with carbon removal.
Good morning! It’s been a fun, creative chapter recently; I hope you’ll take a couple minutes and try your luck at a free trip to Iceland, meet a new filmmaking duo sure to gain attention this year, and learn how past success in incentivizing vaccine development might inform the creation of a global carbon removal marketplace.

I’m delighted to introduce Tomorrow’s Air new creative partners Tristan Copley-Smith and Duncan McDowell, the filmmaker team behind Carbon Catchers, a new documentary series profiling carbon removal entrepreneurs and innovators around the world.
Carbon Catchers will help tell the story of the carbon removal ‘radical cultural phenomenon’ - a happy blend of activism, entrepreneurialism and cutting edge science. Tomorrow’s Air is helping connect the duo with tourism destinations to support production and carbon removal for every episode. Read the blog to meet some of the first entrepreneurs they’ll be profiling.
The news per usual is full of net zero pledges and criticism, along with new carbon removal innovators touting the latest and greatest. Our carbon removal partner Climeworks even made the cover of WIRED magazine. My favorite piece of recent news however, was this opinion piece written by a team of distinguished economists focusing on the crux problem holding carbon removal back - the lack of a large enough global market willing to pay for it.
Tomorrow’s Air exists in recognition of this problem. We came together because we saw the opportunity to bring travelers and travel companies together to help build demand for carbon removal. Even at the height of success we couldn’t be enough on our own though, and this article lays out how the larger carbon removal market might be galvanized. It offers a key success story from the past in which pharmaceutical companies were incentivized to create vaccines for low income countries through a combination of government and philanthropic subsidies.
