GreenBiz: Could this geoengineering venture help save the ice caps?

"Leslie Field, founder and CEO of Ice911, a Silicon Valley nonprofit research corporation, has been doing just that. Field — a micro-electro-mechanical systems and nanotechnology consultant, Stanford consulting professor and inventor — has been collaborating with other scientists and engineers to "restore the earth's refrigerator by slowing down the melt of polar ice," as she explained to me recently. Now, the organization is seeking ways to scale its idea."

Nicholson, Simon; et al. (2017): Solar radiation management. A proposal for immediate polycentric governance

Nicholson, Simon; Jinnah, Sikina; Gillespie, Alexander (2017): Solar radiation management. A proposal for immediate polycentric governance. In Climate Policy 21 (1), pp. 1–13. DOI: 10.1080/14693062.2017.1400944.

"Specifically, we build from existing literature to argue that SRM governance must simultaneously: guard against the risks of uncontrolled SRM development; enable potentially valuable research; build legitimacy for research and any future policy through broad public engagement and ensure that SRM is only considered as one part of a broader mitigation agenda. We propose three interventions to work towards those objectives in the near term by: developing a transparency mechanism for research; creating a global forum for public engagement and including consideration of SRM in the global stocktake under the Paris Agreement."

World Ocean Observatory: Point Source Solutions for Solving Ocean Problems

"In this episode of World Ocean Radio we ask who benefits from current solutions to ocean acidification, co2 emissions, and plastic pollution, and if there might be simpler ideas that involve investments in green technologies, demand for alternatives, and a shift in attitudes and behaviors away from a bankrupt system of fossil fuels toward one of sustainability and solution."
