Washington Post: If we’re going to fix climate change, we’ll have to get creative

"The developing world deserves reparations from wealthier nations as compensation for the harmful climate change effects that are mostly our fault. It’s us who have tainted our global commons by emitting vast amounts of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and us whose actions have led to extreme weather and other disasters in the world’s most vulnerable regions."

The Conversation: We need to get serious about ‘negative emissions’ technology – fast

"The simple truth is that stabilising the climate will require net emissions to fall to essentially zero, and we are nowhere near close to that. To have a good chance of avoiding the 2°C threshold we’d have to limit the total amount of carbon burnt (over all time) to less than a trillion tonnes. So far we have burnt about 600 billion tonnes and will use up the remainder before 2040. For a 1.5°C limit, we have only 100 billion tonnes of burnable carbon left, which will be used well within the next decade."

Shanghai Daily: Exploring pros and cons of human intervention with climate change

Review of Oliver Morton's book. "These days, there are no doubts about mankind’s contribution to climate change due to the burning of fossil fuels. If the burning of fossil fuels continues at current rates, our planet’s temperature will rise, which will lead to crop failures, extreme weather, and a rising sea-level."

The Diane Rehm Show: Environmental Outlook: A New Push For Carbon Removal

Radio broadcast on CDR. "Last month’s climate agreement in Paris set the goal of keeping global temperature rise well below two degrees Celsius. Most climate scientists say meeting this challenge won’t be possible with cutting emissions alone – that in the not-too-distant future we will have to remove carbon from the atmosphere to avoid the more devastating effects of climate change. Thoughts on how to do this range from the low tech – plant more trees – to the very high tech – suck the gas directly from the air and store it underground. For this month’s Environmental Outlook: the future of carbon removal."
