Motherboard: Climate ‘Realists’ Are Delusional

"Geo-engineering refers to the projection of sunlight-reflecting aerosols into the atmosphere, combined with using carbon removal technologies designed to induce chemical reactions that absorb carbon from the air, among other still-theoretical technologies that proponents say would put humans more in control of the Earth’s atmosphere and climate."

Business Insider Deutschland: We’re altering the climate so severely that we’ll soon face apocalyptic consequences. Here are 11 last-ditch ways we could hack the planet to reverse that trend.

"Geoengineering is a term that refers to technology that can alter Earth's natural cycles to cool down the planet. It's being increasingly discussed as a potential way to address climate change. Putting mirrors in space, capturing carbon dioxide, and seeding clouds with particles are all ways of manipulating weather or the atmosphere. But some scientists and politicians think geoengineering could damage the planet or lead to war."

Digital Trends: Geoengineering is risky and unproven, but soon it might be necessary

"Imagine the azure blue skies of summer fading to a hazy white as light-scattering aerosols are injected into Earth’s upper atmosphere. Imagine a planet covered with giant artificial chemical sponges leeching gases out of the air that we breathe. Imagine filling the Earth’s oceans with millions of pounds of calcium bicarbonate to alter the levels of acidification."

Forbes: IEA Challenged to Address Limits to Negative Emissions

"The WEO offers the authoritative global outlook on the mix of fuels that will supply our energy decades into the future and, by extension, the level of carbon dioxide emissions that will result. Reverence for the document is so great in government and industry that some maintain that it does more than merely project the future, but in fact defines our path toward it."

Bednar, J.; et al. (2019): On the financial viability of negative emissions

Bednar, J.; Obersteiner, M.; Wagner, F. (2019): On the financial viability of negative emissions. In: Nat Comms 10 (1), S. 1783. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-019-09782-x.

"Climate mitigation will have significant impacts on government spending necessary to finance large-scale deployment of Negative Emission Technologies (NETs). The required expenditure might consume up to a third of general government expenditure in advanced economies."
