The Liquid Grid: Ocean Storage of CO2

"Some ocean scientists are advocating for storing captured COemissions in the deep ocean. The reasons why might surprise you.  In this post I’ll investigate why some think ocean storage of CO2 is a good idea and the potential impacts it could have on the marine environment."

Maher, Damien T.; et al. (2018): Beyond burial. Lateral exchange is a significant atmospheric carbon sink in mangrove forests

Maher, Damien T.; Call, Mitchell; Santos, Isaac R.; Sanders, Christian J. (2018): Beyond burial. Lateral exchange is a significant atmospheric carbon sink in mangrove forests. In: Biology letters 14 (7). DOI: 10.1098/rsbl.2018.0200.

"Our results indicate that the export of DIC and alkalinity results in a long-term atmospheric carbon sink and should be incorporated into the blue carbon paradigm when assessing the role of these habitats in sequestering carbon and mitigating climate change."

Beck, Silke; et al. (2018): The politics of anticipation. The IPCC and the negative emissions technologies experience

Beck, Silke; Mahony, Martin (2018): The politics of anticipation. The IPCC and the negative emissions technologies experience. In: Glob. Sustain. 1, S. 979. DOI: 10.1017/sus.2018.7.

"In the post-Paris political landscape, the relationship between science and politics is changing. We discuss what this means for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), using recent controversies over negative emissions technologies (NETs) as a window into the fraught politics of producing policy-relevant pathways and scenarios. We suggest that pathways and scenarios have a ‘world-making’ power, potentially shaping the world in their own image and creating new political realities. Assessment bodies like the IPCC need to reflect on this power, and the implications of changing political contexts, in new ways."

Science für the People: Geoengineering

"From Barack Obama’s science advisor to the current Republican House Science Committee, the large-scale manipulation of the climate to mitigate global warming–geoengineering, for short–has gained a hearing in the halls of government. For their part, billionaire tycoons such as Bill Gates and Richard Branson champion their own role to drive geoengineering innovation."

MIT Technology Review: How one climate scientist combats threats and misinformation from chemtrail conspiracists

"The basic idea behind the technology they’re studying, known as solar geoengineering, is that spraying certain particles into the stratosphere could reflect enough heat back into space to offset some level of global warming. But the move from lab research to atmospheric experiments has sparked controversy."

Huffpost: The King Of Climate Fiction Makes The Left’s Case For Geoengineering

"Kim Stanley Robinson’s most recent novel imagines a world rocked by a catastrophic rise in sea levels more than a century from now. But in the weeks after a historic heat wave roasted much of the planet, the lauded science fiction writer’s concerns about geoengineering feel much more pressing."
