Institute for Energy Research: Nordhaus Unwittingly Shows Flaws in Case for Carbon Tax

"What is fascinating is that if you go to the actual book review and read the full discussion, you will see that Nordhaus wonders whether scientists should even be conducting cursory experiments to learn more about geoengineering options."

Public Event at the Berlin Symposium: Pointing Science: Climate Engineering - Views Onto a Man-Made Climate

Public Event - July 9 • 19:00 h - at the Symposium

"On thursday evening we invite you to take part in our 'Pointing science' knowledge show 'Climate Engineering • Views Onto a Man-Made Climate' . Pointing science is a media-based show, in which experts as well as the audience are able to participate. The direction of the discussion is determined by the audience, who votes for topics using laser pointers. The combination of scientific expertise, entertaining elements and an active audience enables a lively transfer of complex and diverse knowledge."

Bellamy, Rob (2015): A Sociotechnical Framework for Governing Climate Engineering

Bellamy, Rob (2015): A Sociotechnical Framework for Governing Climate Engineering. In Science, Technology & Human Values. DOI 10.1177/0162243915591855.

"This article explores the governance implications of a Deliberative Mapping project that, unlike other governance principles, have emerged from an extensive process of reflection and reflexivity. In turn, the project has made significant advances in addressing the current deficit of responsibly defined criteria for shaping governance propositions."

Huffington Post: An Interview with Sara Terry on Effectively Documenting Climate Change

"Sara Terry is a media force of nature; an award-winning filmmaker, documentary photographer, and journalist. [...] Terry: [...] I dove deep into geo-engineering for a while, because I was fascinated by all the work that's going on in that field to try to adapt to climate change - and because it's very controversial among climate change researchers.

Lu, Lu; et al. (2015): Microbial Electrolytic Carbon Capture for Carbon Negative and Energy Positive Wastewater Treatment

Lu, Lu; Huang, Zhe; Rau, Greg H.; Ren, Zhiyong Jason (2015): Microbial Electrolytic Carbon Capture for Carbon Negative and Energy Positive Wastewater Treatment. In Environmental science & technology. DOI 10.1021/acs.est.5b00875.

"Energy and carbon neutral wastewater management is a major goal for environmental sustainability, but current progress has only reduced emission rather than using wastewater for active CO2 capture and utilization. We present here a new microbial electrolytic carbon capture (MECC) approach to potentially transform wastewater treatment to a carbon negative and energy positive process."

Winickoff, David E.; et al. (2015): Engaging the Global South on climate engineering research

Winickoff, David E.; Flegal, Jane A.; Asrat, Asfawossen (2015): Engaging the Global South on climate engineering research. In Nature Climate change 5 (7), pp. 627–634. DOI 10.1038/nclimate2632.

"The Global South is relatively under-represented in public deliberations about solar radiation management (SRM), a controversial climate engineering concept. This Perspective analyses the outputs of a deliberative exercise about SRM, which took place at the University of California-Berkeley and involved 45 mid-career environmental leaders, 39 of whom were from the Global South."
