Climatewire: Geoengineering. Experts grapple with the side effects of shading Earth

"A new study of a proposed geoengineering technique to artificially shade the Earth shows that troublesome side effects could be minimized by injecting particles into the atmosphere from points on the planet farther away from the equator."

Climate Advisers: Creating Negative Emissions

"Scientists and other experts increasingly believe that nations will need to proactively deploy planetary-scale solutions to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) from the atmosphere in addition to rapidly decarbonizing the global industrial economy in order to limit the impacts of climate change."

Wang, Qin; et al. (2018): A statistical examination of the effects of stratospheric sulfate geoengineering on tropical storm genesis.

Wang, Qin; Moore, John C.; Ji, Duoying (2018): A statistical examination of the effects of stratospheric sulfate geoengineering on tropical storm genesis. In: Atmos. Chem. Phys 18 (13), S. 9173–9188. DOI: 10.5194/acp-18-9173-2018.

"The thermodynamics of the ocean and atmosphere partly determine variability in tropical cyclone (TC) numberand intensity and are readily accessible from climate model output, but an accurate description of TC variability requiresmuch higher spatial and temporal resolution than the models used in the GeoMIP (Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project) experiments provide. The genesis potential index (GPI) and ventilation index (VI) are combinations of dynamic and thermodynamic variables that provide proxiesfor TC activity under different climate states. Here we use five CMIP5 models that have run the RCP4.5 experiment and the GeoMIP stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI) G4 experiment to calculate the two TC indices over the 2020 to 2069 period across the six ocean basins that generate TCs."
