World Politics Review: Geoengineering is inevitable in the face of climate change. But at what cost?

"In the face of this looming threat, climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts are necessary but insufficient. Humanity must also consider a third option it has long resisted: geoengineering, or the deliberate, large-scale manipulation of the planetary environment."

Pires, J. (2019): Negative emissions technologies: A complementary solution for climate change mitigation

Pires, J. (2019): Negative emissions technologies: A complementary solution for climate change mitigation. In: Science of the Total Environment 672, S. 502–514. DOI: 10.1016/j.scitotenv.2019.04.004.

"Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the main greenhouse gas (GHG) and its atmospheric concentration is currently 50% higher than pre-industrial levels. The continuous GHGs emissions may lead to severe and irreversible consequences in the climate system. [...] This paper aims to present the recent research works regarding NETs, focusing the research findings achieved by academic groups and projects."

Lewis, S.; et al. (2019): Restoring natural forests is the best way to remove atmospheric carbon

Lewis, S.; Wheeler, C.; Mitchard, E.; Koch, A. (2019): Restoring natural forests is the best way to remove atmospheric carbon. In: Nature 568 (7750), S. 25–28. DOI: 10.1038/d41586-019-01026-8.

"To stem global warming, deforestation must stop. And restoration programmes worldwide should return all degraded lands to natural forests — and protect them. More carbon must be stored on land, while recognizing competing pressures to deliver food, fuel, fodder and fibre."
