Nexus Media: Four Cool Ways to Clear the Air

"Scientists say we need drastically to cut carbon pollution. Not only that, we must look for ways to remove carbon from the atmosphere. Right now, trees are the best tool for the job. Artificial approaches to carbon capture remain too expensive to be practical on a large scale, but several methods show promise. Here are four."

IASS: First Climate Engineering Conference (CEC17) Steering Committee Meeting

"Following the success of the first international climate engineering conference in 2014 (CEC14), the IASS will host a second climate engineering conference in 2017 (CEC17). The conference will be held in late summer/early fall 2017 in Berlin and will serve three purposes: As an advanced review for the current state of climate engineering research, as a forum for developing synergies between academic, policy, and civic stakeholders, and as an exposition of the evolution, diversity, and relevance of this issue at an important stage in the development of options to mitigate climate change."

Daily Post: Oppenheimer Lecture: National Academy Of Sciences President Examines Question Of Climate Intervention

"The subject of McNutt’s lecture on “Climate Intervention: A Last Resort? is based on two parallel studies she chaired for the NAS Committee on Geoengineering Climate that were published simultaneously earlier this year. An interesting change in terminology can be detected, from “geoengineering” to “intervention.” Indeed, the committee was tasked with conducting “a technical evaluation of a limited number of proposed geoengineering techniques, including examples of both solar radiation management and carbon dioxide removal techniques.”"

Yale environment 360: How Growing Sea Plants Can Help Slow Ocean Acidification

"Researchers are finding that kelp, eelgrass, and other vegetation can effectively absorb CO2 and reduce acidity in the ocean. Growing these plants in local waters, scientists say, could help mitigate the damaging impacts of acidification on marine life."

Climate Central: Negative Emissions Key to Meeting 2°C Threshold

Response to Sanderson, Benjamin M.; et al. (2016). "Humans will have to not only stop emitting greenhouse gases by 2085, but also develop technology that will result in negative emissions — the removal of 15 billion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere each year by the end of the century —  in order to prevent global warming from exceeding 2°C (3.6°F), according to a new study."

Geoengineering Monitor: Miserable failure at Kemper “clean coal” plant indicates future failure of “clean bioenergy” climate solution

"Since then growing attention has been given to this technofix as the main approach to removing CO2 from the overloaded atmosphere. This is in spite of the fact that there are currently no operating commercial-scale BECCS projects*, and there is ongoing serious debate over the climate and other impacts of all large scale bioenergy. There are also serious concerns about costs, feasibility and safety of underground storage."

Geographical: Unnatural Climates

"Once we manage our climate to keep it as ‘natural’ as possible, however defined, then why should we not use such interventions to make life easier for those suffering from climate disasters? ‘Natural’ climate comes with many risks for humans, it is not a perfect world."
