Dailymail online: 'Planet hacking' methods to tackle climate change will NOT unfairly impact the world's most vulnerable if used in moderation, experts claim

"'Planet hacking' may still be a viable counter to climate change if used moderately, as to lower the risk of side effects unfairly impacting the world's most vulnerable. Solar geoengineering schemes would see aerosol particles injected into the atmosphere to reflect more sunlight back into space."

Call for Abstracts: Aerosol Approaches to Climate Engineering (AMS100)

Deadline: 1. August 2019

"This joint session covers broad topics such as results from climate modeling, using analogs such as volcanic eruptions and ship tracks, and development of technology to actually implement solar geoengineering. Papers on the physics of climate engineering should be submitted to this joint session, and on ethical and governance issues related to climate engineering to the session "Ethics and governance of weather modification and geoengineering" at the 22nd Conference on Planned and Inadvertent Weather Modification. Invited keynote speaker: Simone Tilmes (NCAR). Session Chair: Alan Robock (Rutgers University)."

Phys.org:First snapshots of trapped CO2 molecules shed new light on carbon capture

"Scientists from the Department of Energy's SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have taken the first images of carbon dioxide molecules within a molecular cage—part of a highly porous nanoparticle known as a MOF, or metal-organic framework, with great potential for separating and storing gases and liquids."
