Science Newsline: Climate Engineering, Once Started, Would Have Severe Impacts If Stopped

"The study was published online today in Nature Ecology & Evolution. The paper was co-authored by Rutgers Distinguished Professor Alan Robock, research associate Lili Xia and postdoc Brian Zambri, all from the Department of Environmental Sciences at Rutgers University-New Brunswick. Other co-authors were from the University of Maryland, Yale University and Stony Brook University."

Carbon Brief: Geoengineering carries ‘large risks’ for the natural world, studies show

"Reducing the impacts of human-caused climate change through the use of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage – better known as BECCS – could have major consequences for wildlife, forests and water resources, a new study shows."

Climate Geme Changers: Planetary Intervention

"Having increased atmospheric greenhouse gases by a third in only a century there is now a risk that the climate might change out of all recognition, in the space of only a few years.  So, now people are debating methods of intervening, including removal of atmospheric greenhouse gases and cooling the planet by increasing its albedo (reflecting more sunshine out to space)."

New Strait Times: Uncertainties and implications

"In the final analysis, there should be a global moratorium on large-scale geo-engineering intervention in the world’s climate until everything is in place: rules and regulations to be formulated must be accepted at the global level while sufficient research and pilot experiments must be carried out. A global research pool must also be formed. Recent findings regarding geo-engineering must be transparent and open."

Bellona: EU Parliament concludes synthetic low carbon fuels should indeed be low carbon

"Yesterday, the European Parliament voted on the use of renewable energy in the coming decade. Of all the big issues on the radar, the Parliament caught the one that tried to fly under it – synthetic fossil fuels. Produced by using massive amounts of renewable energy and fossil CO2 from industrial sources, the fuel would be emitting that same fossil CO2 back to the atmosphere from the tailpipe of the car it’s combusted in. By requiring the use of CO2 captured from the ambient air for its production, the Parliament ensured that the so called synthetic low carbon fuel indeed remains low carbon. However, much remains wanting in the renewable energy directive, but in this regard the Parliament move prevents CO2 laundering and false climate accounting of new synthetic fossil fuels."

Triple Pundit: Planting Trees Has Become a Big Business

"Nevertheless, there are companies finding success in this sector. One of them is United Kingdom-based Biocarbon Engineering, which operates a fleet of drones reforesting areas that are difficult to access. The Dutch firm Land Life Company, maker of water vessels based on an ancient Mesopotamian technology, manages ongoing projects from Chile to Zambia and expects to be profitable in a few years. Land Life claims its “cocoons,” made out recycled wood pulp, offer a much higher survival rate for tree seedlings compared to traditional tree planting methods."
