Carbon Brief: UK launches ‘world first’ research programme into negative emissions

"The UK has launched a £8.6m national research programme on how to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. It is thought to be the world’s first research programme dedicated to this topic."

The Conversation: Worthless mining waste could suck CO₂ out of the atmosphere and reverse emissions

"The Paris Agreement commits nations to limiting global warming to less than 2˚C by the end of the century. However, it is becoming increasingly apparent that, to meet such a massive challenge, societies will need to do more than simply reduce and limit carbon emissions. It seems likely that large scale removal of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere may be called for: so-called “negative emissions”."

Nonprofit Chronicles: It’s crunch time for climate philanthropy. What should foundations do?

"Geoengineering: Efforts to mitigate carbon emissions will likely fall short. So we should be aggressively researching geoengineering–deliberate, large-scale efforts to counter the effects of global warming. It sounds scary, to be sure. So does chemotherapy, until cancer strikes."

Project: NERC with £8.6 million UK research programme on greenhouse gas removal

"To help answer these questions, the £8·6 million Greenhouse Gas Removal Research Programme will evaluate the potential and wider implications of a variety of options. For example, researchers will investigate the potential for increasing carbon storage in agricultural soil and forests, and new ways to remove methane gas from the air on a local scale. Other researchers will look into using waste materials from mining as a greenhouse gas removal technique, and explore how bioenergy crops could be used in power stations in combination with carbon capture and storage methods. Recognising that the UK alone cannot solve these problems, the research will address the political, socio-economic, technological and environmental issues concerning the potential for greenhouse gas removal on a global scale."

Time: Bloomberg and Pope: Plants Are the Key to Repairing Climate Damage

"We simply have to protect valuable natural ecosystems like peat bogs and mangroves, start planting and growing more trees than we cut, adopt farming practices that treat soil as a primary asset rather than stripping it of nutrients and carbon, and allow grasslands to be grazed in ways that enhance, rather than destroy, their productivity. Healthier agriculture and forestry, in all their forms, are the keys to reducing atmospheric concentrations of CO2."

Paste: Will Trump Halt Climate Change Through Solar Geoengineering?

"Scientists are in the midst of devising real-world schemes to inject 250,000 metric tons of sulfate particles into the atmosphere in an effort to reverse climate change. The idea has been around since the 1960s and has recently become a cultish policy favorite of prominent Republicans such as Newt Gingrich, Rex Tillerson and even President Donald Trump."

Nextbigfuture Blog: Tests for safe Geoengineering should start now

"Harvard’s Schrag argued the opposite: that the scariest version of the future may be one where geoengineering is never developed or deployed. “I don’t think people understand just what we’re up against with climate,” he said. “The most likely scenarios for climate over longer time scales are devastating to future generations, absolutely devastating.”"

Intrigued Introvert Blog: Geoengineering: the good, the bad and the ugly (Part 1)

"To begin, let’s explain what exactly geoengineering is and how it can be used. Geoengineering is the large scale modification of a natural process that affects the climate of the Earth. Sounds cool, right?"
