Dezeen: Britt Berden uses laboratory equipment to visualise the impact of climate engineering

"Dutch designer Britt Berden has created a pair of models that show what happens when scientists try to counter global warming. Presented at this year's Dutch Design Week, Plan B is a project that aims to educate people on the process and effects of climate engineering – and to help them understand the potentially harmful consequences."

Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists: Carbon removal: A cart in need of a horse

"Increasingly, it seems that averting climate disaster will require not just reducing carbon emissions but also finding ways to remove from the atmosphere carbon dioxide that humanity has already placed there. But how, practically speaking, can we remove vast amounts of carbon from something as large and unwieldy as Earth’s atmosphere?"

Phys.org: Counting the carbon cost of forest destruction

"The world is losing its trees, but at what cost? Better estimates of deforestation and degradation could shed light on the amount of CO2 emitted, refine climate models and help developing countries better manage their forests."

Science Friday: Could Tweaking The Atmosphere Help Us Fight Climate Change?

"Last week, world leaders convened in Bonn, Germany to talk about reducing global carbon emissions to fight climate change. Meanwhile, the U.S. House Science Committee held a hearing about a rather controversial method to combating rising temperatures. It’s called geoengineering and it involves manipulating the atmosphere to cool down the earth."
