Goeppert, Alain; et al. (2012): Air as the renewable carbon source of the future: an overview of CO2 capture from the atmosphere

Goeppert, Alain; Czaun, Miklos; Surya Prakash, G. K.; Olah, George A. (2012): Air as the renewable carbon source of the future: an overview of CO2 capture from the atmosphere. In: Energy Environ. Sci. 5 (7), pp. 7833-7853.

"The present article reviews methods developed for the capture of CO2 directly from the air as well as their advantages and drawbacks. While strong bases such as sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide could be used, their regeneration is energy intensive, requiring high temperatures."

Moreno-Cruz, Juan B.; Keith, David W. (2012): Climate policy under uncertainty: a case for solar geoengineering

Moreno-Cruz, Juan B.; Keith, David W. (2012): Climate policy under uncertainty: a case for solar geoengineering. In: Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0487-4

This paper has been published as a working paper before. "We find that even modest reductions in uncertainty about the side-effects of SRM can reduce the overall costs of climate change in the order of 10%."
