Marcucci, Adriana; et al. (2017): The road to achieving the long-term Paris targets. Energy transition and the role of direct air capture

Marcucci, Adriana; Kypreos, Socrates; Panos, Evangelos (2017): The road to achieving the long-term Paris targets. Energy transition and the role of direct air capture. In Climatic Change 45 (Part A), p. 1047. DOI: 10.1007/s10584-017-2051-8

"n this paper, we quantify the energy transition and economic consequences of the long-term targets from the Paris agreement, with a particular focus on the targets of limiting global warming by the end of the century to 2 and 1.5 °C. The study assumes early actions and quantifies the market penetration of low carbon technologies, the emission pathways and the economic costs for an efficient reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions such that the temperature limit is not exceeded. We evaluate the potential role of direct air capture (DAC) and its impact on policy costs and energy consumption."

the guardian: Silver linings: the climate scientist who records cloud behaviour

"Clouds cool the planet by reflecting solar energy back to space and also trap heat and radiate it back to Earth. In a Yale Environment 360 interview, physicist Kate Marvel discusses the double-edged effect clouds have on rising temperatures."
