Lin, Brenda B.; et al. (2013): Maximizing the Environmental Benefits of Carbon Farming through Ecosystem Service Delivery

Lin, Brenda B.; Macfadyen, Sarina, et al. (2013): Maximizing the Environmental Benefits of Carbon Farming through Ecosystem Service Delivery. In BioScience 63 (10), pp. 793–803. DOI 10.1525/bio.2013.63.10.6. (pre-publication)

"Conversely, carbon farming, if it is not implemented carefully, can create disbenefits, such as increased land clearing, monoculture plantations replacing diverse remnants, and unintended impacts across national borders."

American Chemical Society: Artificial lung to remove carbon dioxide — from smokestacks

Reported on a meeting of the American Chemical Society. "The amazingly efficient lungs of birds and the swim bladders of fish have become the inspiration for a new filtering system to remove carbon dioxide from electric power station smokestacks before the main greenhouse gas can billow into the atmosphere and contribute to global climate change."

MacDougal, Andrew. H. (2013): Reversing climate warming by artificial atmospheric carbon-dioxide removal. can a Holocene-like climate be restored? (pre-final)

MacDougal, Andrew. H. (2013): Reversing climate warming by artificial atmospheric carbon-dioxide removal. can a Holocene-like climate be restored? (pre-final). In Geophys. Res. Lett. DOI 10.1002/2013GL057467.

"In this study experiments are conducted using the University of Victoria Earth system climate model forced with novelfuture scenarios to explore the reversibility of climate warming as a response to a gradual return to pre-industrial radiative forcing."
