Rochster Business Journal: Can the left and right talk about climate change without guilt?

"I speculate that the assignment of responsibility contributes to the left/right conflict. Opponents of climate policy remind us that global warming and cooling occurred in the past, well before humans had the capacity to affect the atmosphere. Climate activists, by contrast, rarely fail to include the phrase “caused by human activity” in the discussion. Does it really matter? As long as we accept that greenhouse gases matter and that the problem poses significant risk, then the policy solutions are pretty much the same whether the cause is natural or anthropogenic."

Environmental Guru: Evoking equity as a rationale for solar geoengineering research? Scrutinizing emerging expert visions of equity

"A post summarizing a recent paper in International Environmental Agreements. - Solar geoengineering ideas remain largely confined to the imagination, with very little scientific research funded to date beyond indoor modeling studies. Explicit policy demand for this supply of science appears to be minimal, although this could certainly change. In this context, a small group of experts advocating for more research into solar geoengineering—what we term, following Stephen Hilgartner, “sociotechnical vanguards,”—are justifying a call for more research, sometimes on equity grounds."

Vox: Good news! Avoiding catastrophic climate change isn’t impossible yet. Just incredibly hard

"Even rapidly bringing our net greenhouse gas emissions down to zero probably won’t be enough to ensure that temperatures peak and begin falling before 2 C. To ensure that, we need to start sucking carbon back out of the atmosphere. We need to go carbon negative."
