Berkeley Engineering: One big reflective band-aid

"While Ice911’s work falls in the category of geoengineering, Field is adamant that any climate change technology be removable or reversible, and she stresses that slowing Arctic ice melt is not a long-term solution. Instead, it’s triage until more permanent and sustainable long-term climate solutions can be adopted."

Nunatsiaq: As Arctic warms, interest in geoengineering increases

"Geoengineering could gain countries the time to change from an energy system based on dirty fossil fuels, like oil and coal, which also produce climate-warming emissions, to renewable, clean energy say its supporters."

Columbia Climate Center (2016): A 5˚C Arctic in a 2˚C World. Challenges and Recommendations for Immediate Action from the July 21-22, 2016 Workshop

Columbia Climate Center (2016): A 5˚C Arctic in a 2˚C World. Challenges and Recommendations for Immediate Action from the July 21-22, 2016 Workshop. WWF; Arctic 21; Woods Hole Research Center.

Outcomes: "To avert massive environmental impacts beyond the time frame of a few decades, it is critical to immediately scale up implementation of alternative energy production, as well as decarbonization of the energy system. We also should greatly increase efforts in research and development and subsequent deployment of carbon dioxide removal (CDR) on a global scale."

the guardian: Time to listen to the ice scientists about the Arctic death spiral

"The Arctic’s ice is disappearing. We must reduce emissions, fast, or the human castastrophe predicted by ocean scientist Peter Wadhams will become reality. [...] He wants global action to find new ways to remove carbon from the atmosphere, and is not afraid of nuclear power – both of which answers can be swallowed – but he also argues for a colossal, global research programme in geo- engineering."
