Campbell-Arvai, Victoria; et al. (2017): The influence of learning about carbon dioxide removal (CDR) on support for mitigation policies

Campbell-Arvai, Victoria; Hart, P. Sol; Raimi, Kaitlin T.; Wolske, Kimberly S. (2017): The influence of learning about carbon dioxide removal (CDR) on support for mitigation policies. In Climatic Change 143 (3-4), pp. 321–336. DOI: 10.1007/s10584-017-2005-1.

"Using an online survey of US adults (N = 984), we tested these competing hypotheses by exposing participants to information about different forms of CDR. We find that learning about certain CDR strategies indirectly reduces support for mitigation policies by reducing the perceived threat of climate change. This was found to be true for participants who read about CDR in general (without mention of specific strategies), bioenergy with carbon capture and storage, or direct air capture."

Marcucci, Adriana; et al. (2017): The road to achieving the long-term Paris targets. Energy transition and the role of direct air capture

Marcucci, Adriana; Kypreos, Socrates; Panos, Evangelos (2017): The road to achieving the long-term Paris targets. Energy transition and the role of direct air capture. In Climatic Change 45 (Part A), p. 1047. DOI: 10.1007/s10584-017-2051-8

"n this paper, we quantify the energy transition and economic consequences of the long-term targets from the Paris agreement, with a particular focus on the targets of limiting global warming by the end of the century to 2 and 1.5 °C. The study assumes early actions and quantifies the market penetration of low carbon technologies, the emission pathways and the economic costs for an efficient reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions such that the temperature limit is not exceeded. We evaluate the potential role of direct air capture (DAC) and its impact on policy costs and energy consumption."
