Jon and Aaron's Post Carbon Project Blog: What makes an effective Op-ED; A comparison

Response to Parker/Keith in Washington Post. "I would conclude in saying that I thought Parker and Keith wrote an effective article, with an easy to follow organization and just enough individual style and wit to capture the reader. I do not agree with everything that brought to light or some of their techniques, but that is why it is an opinion piece."

Overall, geoengineering is presented as a solution with harmful effects that nevertheless may be necessary in an emergency."

The Ecologist: Survivable IPCC projections are based on science fiction - the reality is much worse

On CDR included in IPCC scenarioas. "The IPCC's 'Representative Concentration Pathways' are based on fantasy technology that must draw massive volumes of CO2 out of the atmosphere late this century, writes Nick Breeze - an unjustified hope that conceals a very bleak future for Earth, and humanity."

Muscatine Journal: The hope or hoax of geoengineering

"There is a fine line between creative ingenuity and wishful thinking-between science and science fiction. We must stay the course and do the hard work on the roots of the problem. As a basis for policy and action today, the simple engineering solution does not exist."
