CTV: Geo-engineering could be the solution to slow global warming

"The fight to reduce the impact of human-induced global warming has primarily focused on reducing emissions. However, scientists say those measures may not be enough, so they're coming up with some radical new solutions."

Bala, Govindasamy; Gupta, Akhilesh (2017): Geoengineering and India

Bala, Govindasamy; Gupta, Akhilesh (2017): Geoengineering and India. Meeting Report 113 (3), pp. 376–377.

"Hence, the Department of Science and Technology (DST) has recently launched a Major R&D project (MRDP) at Centre for Amospheric and Oceanic Sciences (CAOS), Indian Institute of Science (IISc) to undertake climate modelling experiments in order to generate strategic knowledge on stratospheric aerosol geoengineering. The primary objective of convening the roundtable discussion on geoengineering was to seek views of the experts and policy makers on the issue of whether and how geoengineering is likely to impact India."

Insurence Journal: Climate Engineering Companies Aim to Curb Global Warming with Science

"Scientists are sucking carbon dioxide from the air with giant fans and preparing to release chemicals from a balloon to dim the sun’s rays as part of a climate engineering push to cool the planet. Backers say the risky, often expensive projects are urgently needed to find ways of meeting the goals of the Paris climate deal to curb global warming that researchers blame for causing more heatwaves, downpours and rising sea levels."

Tavoni, Massimo; et al. (2017): Challenges and Opportunities for Integrated Modeling of Climate Engineering

Tavoni, Massimo; Bosetti, Valentina; Shayegh, Soheil; Drouet, Laurent; Emmerling, Johannes; Fuss, Sabine et al. (2017): Challenges and Opportunities for Integrated Modeling of Climate Engineering. Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM). Milan (Nota di Lavoro, 38.2017).

"By reviewing the existing literature and reporting the views of experts, we identify research gaps and priorities for improving the integrated assessment of climate engineering. Results point to differentiated roles of CDR and SRM as complementary strategies to the traditional ones, as well as diverse challenges for an adequate representation in integrated assessment models. We identify potential synergies for model development which can help better represent mitigation and adaptation challenges, as well as climate engineering."
