Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists: The trouble with geoengineers “hacking the planet”

"Harvard crosses the Rubicon. But what has really catapulted the idea into the public eye is Harvard’s reckless plan for a privately-funded field trial testing some of the key elements needed for albedo modification"

The National UEA: Sunny outlook for rain-inducing cloud seeding, researchers forecast

"In Britain, projects have analysed whether cloud seeding could help to lower the temperatures of the sea surface, which could make hurricanes less powerful by starving them of energy. Perhaps more outlandish is the suggestion that cloud seeding could limit global warming. Among those interested in producing clouds that could reflect sunlight is Stephen Salter, emeritus professor of engineering design at the University of Edinburgh."

Power Mag: The Deep Dispute over “Deep Decarbonization”

"It began as an academic argument over how the world could meet a goal of 90% reductions in carbon dioxide emissions by 2050, known as “deep decarbonization.” Underneath the academic language is a fight among renewable energy advocates on the one hand and defenders of a role for conventional generating technologies, particularly nuclear, on the other. [...] Nevertheless, the daunting task of deep decarbonization could lead to climate engineering if the world definitively determines that a 2-degree-Celsius rise in global temperatures is an existential threat to the planet."

KQED Radio: Paul Hawken’s Plan to Fix the Climate, With or Without Paris Pact

"Could global warming be not only stabilized but reversed using solutions that already exist? Environmentalist and writer Paul Hawken thinks so, and he’s explained how in his new book, “Drawdown.” In addition to technology-driven solutions, Hawken’s approach includes fixes like family planning to help curb population growth. Hawken joins us to explain his vision for a future that’s as achievable as it is sustainable."

Space Review: Summer is coming: albedo modification and the global temperature auction

"We are years away from the crisis moment when alarm at the negative effects of climate change convince national decision-makers that “something” must be done, and done quickly. It is in that period that investments in research and development made earlier will prove decisive."
