University of Bristol News: Rising CO2 may increase dangerous weather extremes, whatever happens to global temperatures

"New research from the University of Oxford and collaborators at several other institutions, including the University of Bristol, provides compelling evidence that meeting the global warming target of 1.5°C may not be enough to limit the damage caused by extreme weather."

The New Republic: There Is No Quick Fix for Climate Change

"The declarative headline was certainly eye-catching: “Climate Change Can Be Stopped by Turning Air Into Gasoline.” In the article, published in The Atlantic last week, Robinson Meyer reported that a team of scientists led by Harvard professor David Keith had discovered how to pull carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and turn it into liquid fuel—and to do it cheaply, on an industrial scale, by 2021."

Call for Papers: Evaluating the feasibility and consequences of solar geoengineering (AGU 2018)

Deadline: 01. August 2018

"This session will present work that addresses three of these challenges: Can a substantial negative radiative forcing (e.g., 1-4 Wm-2) be practically achieved? What is the climate response to radiative forcing from solar geoengineering? What are the non-climate environmental risks or impacts of specific methods of solar geoengineering? [...]"

Climate Science, Awareness and Solutions Blog: Get Out of Jail Free Card: Carbon Capture

"I am minimizing Communications, so that I can (really!) finish Sophie’s Planet, while also providing expert testimony for several lawsuits aimed at using the judicial branch of government to force the other branches of government to do their job.  However, there is enough popular misinterpretation of recent news about the cost of carbon capture that I should comment on that."

C2G2: A living guide to geoengineering terms

"Geoengineering terminology can be a minefield. As discussed in an earlier post, choosing the right words for geoengineering, every term brings with it a host of values and assumptions, often political, some with significant ramifications for governance."
