Quartz: A bipartisan US group introduced another bill to support a controversial climate technology

"The support it adds for direct air capture is perhaps just as essential, because that’s a technology nearly every climate model says we’ll need to scale up in the next few decades to avoid cataclysmic climate change. Direct air capture, when powered by carbon-neutral sources, is a negative-emissions machine. And the longer we take to cut global emissions, the greater our need for a negative-emissions technology will be."

Daily Mail: Could a man-made chemical sunshade ease global warming? Scientists in developing nations reveal 'crazy' research to dim the sun

"Research into 'solar geo-engineering' plan is now dominated by rich nations. The technique would mimic volcanic eruptions to cool Earth by dimming the sun. But, scholars from developing countries argue that the poor are most vulnerable. They argue developing countries 'must lead on solar geo-engineering research'"
