Oil and Gas Climate Initiative: OGCI Climate Investments announces progression of the UK’s first commercial full-chain Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage Project

"OGCI Climate Investments announced today that it is entering into a strategic partnership with BP, ENI, Equinor, Occidental Petroleum, Shell and Total to progress the Clean Gas Project, the UK’s first commercial full-chain Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) project in Teesside. The Clean Gas Project could form the heart of the Tees Valley CCUS Cluster that will deploy commercially viable, safe, environmentally responsible CCUS at scale. It will combine CO2 capture from new efficient low-carbon power generation and local industrial emitters in Teesside. The project is a result of collaboration between OGCI Climate Investments, its member companies, central and local government and local industry."

LegalPlanet: Don’t Believe Everything That You Read

"If you had followed the climate change news over the weekend, you might have been shocked to see headlines such as 'Scientists Prescribe a Healthy Dose of Sulphate Particles to Promote Global Cooling on the Cheap.' CNN tweeted that 'Harvard and Yale scientists are proposing that we tackle climate change by dimming the sun.' And the British tabloid The Express shouted 'GLOBAL WARMING SOLVED: Plans to DIM Sun by releasing CHEMICALS into atmosphere.' Such exaggerations — both positive and negative — are unfortunately common in media coverage of solar geoengineering."

Nature: First sun-dimming experiment will test a way to cool Earth

"Zhen Dai holds up a small glass tube coated with a white powder: calcium carbonate, a ubiquitous compound used in everything from paper and cement to toothpaste and cake mixes. Plop a tablet of it into water, and the result is a fizzy antacid that calms the stomach. The question for Dai, a doctoral candidate at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and her colleagues is whether this innocuous substance could also help humanity to relieve the ultimate case of indigestion: global warming caused by greenhouse-gas pollution."

C2G2: Governing Carbon Dioxide Removal

"In 2018, the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5°C warned that all pathways to limit warming to 1.5°C envisage the large-scale removal of CO2 from the atmosphere.  This is known as Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR)."

The Heartland Institute: Geo-engineering: Ignoring the Consequences

"The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report said we have only 12 years left to save the planet. It triggered the usual frantic and ridiculous reactions. NBC News offered this gem: “A last-ditch global warming fix? A man-made ‘volcanic’ eruption” to cool the planet.” Its article proclaimed, “Scientists and some environmentalists believe nations might have to mimic volcanic gases as a last-ditch effort to protect Earth from extreme warming.”"

C2G2: Governing large-scale carbon dioxide removal: are we ready?

"In 2015, Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) agreed to limit global temperature increase to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the increase to 1.5 °C . This goal is to be operationalized in part through achievement of a balance between anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks, as stated in Article 4 of the UNFCCC’s Paris Agreement."
