Jamaica Gleaner: New climate change programme raises concern - Mahlung

""The big concern for me, though, being from a small island which suffers greatly from the negative impact of climate change, is that it could also provide an incentive for countries not to reduce their greenhouse emissions. Instead, they would rely on this technology, which would be defeating the whole purpose to combating climate change. It could give people a false sense of hope," Mahlung told The Gleaner."

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.”"

Ilyina, Tatiana; et al. (2013): Assessing the potential of calcium-based artificial ocean alkalinization to mitigate rising atmospheric CO2 and ocean acidification (online first)

Ilyina, Tatiana; Wolf-Gladrow, Dieter; Munhoven, Guy; Heinze, Christoph (2013): Assessing the potential of calcium-based artificial ocean alkalinization to mitigate rising atmospheric CO 2 and ocean acidification. In Geophys. Res. Lett., pp. n/a. DOI 10.1002/2013GL057981. (online first)

"Using a global model, we show that such alkalinization has the potential to preserve pH and the saturation state of carbonate minerals at close to today's values."
