Media Co-op: Five facts CBC listeners didn’t hear from Canada’s geoengineering cheerleader

"Keith didn’t take the time to mention a few other details. For those who are skeptical about Keith's case for geoengineering, here are five things that Keith didn't mention, and Enright kindly didn't bring up."

Muri, H.; et al. (2014): The climatic effects of modifying cirrus clouds in a climate engineering framework

Muri, H.; Kristjánsson, J. E.; Storelvmo, T.; Pfeffer, M. A. (2014): The climatic effects of modifying cirrus clouds in a climate engineering framework. In J. Geophys. Res. Atmos., pp. n/a. DOI 10.1002/2013JD021063.

"It was found that targeting cirrus clouds everywhere outside of the tropics results in changes to the circulation and precipitation even in the non - climate engineered regions, underscoring the risks of remote side effects and indeed the complexity of the climate system."

Huneeus, Nicolas; et al. (2014): Forcings and feedbacks in the GeoMIP ensemble for a reduction in solar irradiance and increase in CO2

Huneeus, Nicolas; Boucher, Olivier; Alterskjaer, Kari; Cole, Jason N. S.; Curry, Charles L.; Ji, Duoying et al. (2014): Forcings and feedbacks in the GeoMIP ensemble for a reduction in solar irradiance and increase in CO2. In J. Geophys. Res. Atmos., pp. n/a. DOI 10.1002/2013JD021110.

"The forcing and feedback parameters of the net energy flux, as well as its different components at the top-of-atmosphere (TOA) and surface, were examined in ten Earth System Models to better understand the impact of solar radiation management on the energy budget. In spite of their very different nature, the feedback parameter and its components at the TOA and surface are almost identical for the two forcing mechanisms, not only in the global mean, but also in their geographical distributions."

Robinson, J.; et al. (2014): How deep is deep enough? Ocean iron fertilization and carbon sequestration in the Southern Ocean

Robinson, J.; Popova, E. E.; Yool, A.; Srokosz, M.; Lampitt, R. S.; Blundell, J. R. (2014): How deep is deep enough? Ocean iron fertilization and carbon sequestration in the Southern Ocean. In Geophys. Res. Lett., pp. n/a. DOI 10.1002/2013GL058799.

"This study assesses the impact of deep circulation on carbon sequestered by OIF in the Southern Ocean, a high-nutrient-low-chlorophyll region known to be iron-stressed."
