BoingBoing: The Planet Remade: frank, clear-eyed book on geoengineering, climate disaster, & humanity's future

Another review on Oliver Morton's book. "Since its publication in late 2015, science writer Oliver Morton's The Planet Remade: How Geoengineering Could Change the World has swept many "best book" (best science book, best business book, best nonfiction book) and with good reason: though it weighs in at a hefty 440 pages and covers a broad scientific, political and technological territory, few science books are more important, timely and beautifully written."

Technological Proposal: The ISA Procedure for Climate Cooling

"The following report is a contribution to climate protection and constitutes a procedure for climate protection that
will prevent a further increase of greenhouse gases. The procedure is based on specific chemical and biological
processes that reduce CO2 and methane. This is achieved by releasing a solid or gaseous iron compound into the atmosphere by means of combustion or carrier gases."

Geeks on Earth: Can Solar Geoengineering Be Part Of Responsible Climate Policy?

"There are a number of ideas for how people might intentionally alter the planet's climate system - an approach called geoengineering. One of the most frequently discussed ideas is solar geoengineering, blocking some of sun's energy by, for example, injecting tiny particles called sulfate aerosols into the atmosphere. But solar geoengineeering remains a controversial method of addressing climate change."
