Business Green: Academics call for geoengineering preparation in wake of Paris Agreement’s 'deadly flaws'

Envirotidings: Geo-engineering the climate: Possible remedy or colossal catastrophe?

"The application of geo-engineering as a proposed solution to climate change must be exercised with caution, as it can have numerous damaging and unknown consequences. In a desperate effort to produce innovative ideas to combat climate change, scientists are proposing solutions that range from practical to colossally extreme in their impacts. [...] It appears that rather than promoting solutions on smaller scales, such as at the individual and community levels, a number of scientists are looking to engage in grand solutions that appear promising, but can in fact be disastrous. Doug Parr, chief scientist for Greenpeace UK, strengthens this argument by saying that: “the scientific community is becoming so scared of our collective inability to tackle climate emissions that such outlandish schemes are being considered for serious study.”"

Washington Post: If we’re going to fix climate change, we’ll have to get creative

"The developing world deserves reparations from wealthier nations as compensation for the harmful climate change effects that are mostly our fault. It’s us who have tainted our global commons by emitting vast amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and us whose actions have led to extreme weather and other disasters in the world’s most vulnerable regions."

The Conversation: We need to get serious about ‘negative emissions’ technology – fast

"The simple truth is that stabilising the climate will require net emissions to fall to essentially zero, and we are nowhere near close to that. To have a good chance of avoiding the 2°C threshold we’d have to limit the total amount of carbon burnt (over all time) to less than a trillion tonnes. So far we have burnt about 600 billion tonnes and will use up the remainder before 2040. For a 1.5°C limit, we have only 100 billion tonnes of burnable carbon left, which will be used well within the next decade."
