Heck, Vera; et al. (2016): Collateral transgression of planetary boundaries due to climate engineering by terrestrial carbon dioxide removal

Heck, Vera; Donges, Jonathan F.; Lucht, Wolfgang (2016): Collateral transgression of planetary boundaries due to climate engineering by terrestrial carbon dioxide removal. In Earth Syst. Dynam. Discuss., pp. 1–24. DOI 10.5194/esd-2016-22.

"We analyse the co-evolutionary interaction of societal interventions via tCDR and the natural dynamics of the Earth’s carbon cycle. Applying a conceptual modelling framework, we analyse how societal monitoring and management of atmospheric CO2 concentrations with the aim of staying within a ’safe’ level of global warming might influence the state of the Earth system with respect to other carbon-related planetary boundaries."

21st Century Tech: What Are Smart Rocks?

On carbon storage. "The term “smart rocks” is one defined by researchers seeking the perfect storage medium for sequestering carbon dioxide (CO2). At Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, researchers are trying to synthesize the perfect rock for capturing CO2. They want to grow “smart rocks” to understand how liquids and gas permeate porous subsurface strata."

Elliott, Kevin C. (2016): Climate Geoengineering

Elliott, Kevin C. (2016): Climate Geoengineering. In Sven Ove Hansson, Gertrude Hirsch Hadorn (Eds.): Argumentative turn in policy analysis. Reasoning about uncertainty, vol. 10. [S.l.]: Springer (Logic, Argumentation & Reasoning), pp. 305–324.

"Instead, debates about climate geoengineering incorporate a wide variety of issues that can be fruitfully addressed using argumentative analysis. These include conceptual questions about how to characterize and frame the decision problem; ethical questions about the values and principles that should guide decision makers; and procedural questions about how to make decisions about climate geoengineering in a fair, legitimate manner."
