C2G: Technical Brief: Considering climate-altering technologies in the IPCC AR6

"The Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC-AR6), currently in preparation, will play a key role in the formation of future climate change policy. This brief identifies where climate-altering technologies: Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) and Solar Radiation Modification (SRM) will be considered for inclusion in the Assessment. It also identifies where opportunities exist for the inclusion of further contributions about CDR, SRM and their governance, before the deadline for literature review in June 2020."

Descrier: Five things every government needs to do right now to tackle the climate emergency

"If targets were enough to beat the climate crisis, we would have cause for celebration. The UK, Norway, Sweden and France have written a target of net-zero emissions into law, and 15 others are considering similar legislation or have non-binding targets. Hundreds of cities, regions and individual companies have made similar pledges."

Bach, L. T.; et al. (2019): CO2 Removal With Enhanced Weathering and Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement: Potential Risks and Co-benefits for Marine Pelagic Ecosystems

Bach, Lennart T.; Gill, Sophie J.; Rickaby, Rosalind E. M.; Gore, Sarah; Renforth, Phil (2019): CO2 Removal With Enhanced Weathering and Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement: Potential Risks and Co-benefits for Marine Pelagic Ecosystems. In Front. Clim. 1, p. 7. DOI: 10.3389/fclim.2019.00007.

"Humankind will need to remove hundreds of gigatons of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere by the end of the twenty-first century to keep global warming below 2°C within the constraints of the global carbon budget. However, so far it is unclear if and how this could be achieved."

The Times: The climate crisis: can we fix it?

"Cities are clogged with young protesters crying “Extinction!” Greta Thunberg spits out “How dare you?” at the ruling classes and the complacent old. How dare we sell the futures of young people for our cars, our planes, our meat and our addiction to economic growth? Next weekend, unsurprisingly, there will be a conference in London about new forms of mental illness: climate anxieties and depression."
