Carbon Brief: Analysis: How ‘natural climate solutions’ can reduce the need for BECCS

"To limit global warming in 2100 to below 1.5C above pre-industrial levels, many scientists assume that the large-scale use of negative emissions in the latter half of the 21st century will be needed. Negative emissions “suck” CO2 out of the atmosphere, allowing a more gradual reduction of emissions in the near-term."

C2G2: Using creativity to communicate about geoengineering

"I am at at the “Understanding Risk Forum” (UR2018) in Mexico, where I got a chance first hand to see how Pablo Suarez and his team from the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre are using the power of art to express some of the powerful emotions raised by the prospect of solar geoengineering. This is a conversation whose outcome may be driven as much by values and instinct as by science and deliberative debate. Animation, music, puzzles and poetry are powerful media which can help us better understand and navigate the dramatic challenges which solar geoengineering may bring."

BBC News: Turning carbon dioxide into rock - forever

"Nested in the snow-covered mountains of western Iceland, a maze of turbines and pipes belches thick billows of steam. This mammoth structure is responsible for providing power to a country where 100% of the electricity comes from renewable sources."

Geoengineering Monitor: Bio-Energy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)

"BECCS describes capturing CO2 from bioenergy applications and sequestering it through either Carbon Capture and Storage or Carbon Capture, Use and Storage. BECCS is considered “carbon negative” because bioenergy is wrongly considered “carbon neutral” based on the idea that plants will regrow to fix the carbon that has been emitted."

Africa Times: African scientists: Who has the right to pursue climate geoengineering?

"Asfawossen Asrat is professor of geology, School of Earth Sciences at Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia. Nelson Torto is executive director at The African Academy of Sciences in Nairobi, Kenya. What they have in common – along with 10 other scientists from the Global South – is a concern over geoengineering strategies now being considered in the fight against a warming climate."

Grist: California is turning farms into carbon-sucking factories

"In a grand experiment, California switched on a fleet of high-tech greenhouse gas removal machines last month. Funded by the state’s cap-and-trade program, they’re designed to reverse climate change by sucking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. These wonderfully complex machines are more high-tech than anything humans have designed. They’re called plants."
