C2G: Blog post: Gender and Climate Engineering: A View From Feminist Science (Tina Sikka)

"Climate engineering technologies should to be taken up in ways that attend to gender-specific concerns. These could take account of differentiated impacts on women, their lack of power in decision-making, and the gendered nature of vulnerability."

Roussanaly, Simon; et al. (2020): Impact of Uncertainties on the Design and Cost of CCS From a Waste-to-Energy Plant

Roussanaly, Simon, Jabir A. Ouassou, Rahul Anantharaman, and Martin Haaf (2020): Impact of Uncertainties on the Design and Cost of CCS From a Waste-to-Energy Plant. Frontiers in Energy Research 8 (February). https://doi.org/10.3389/fenrg.2020.00017.

"This paper investigates the optimal design of carbon capture and storage from a waste-to-energy plant under uncertainties. With the aim of providing a better understanding of the impact of uncertainties on the design and cost of CCS chains, as well as the capture technology selection, the case of a hypothetical 40 MW waste-to-energy plant located in Norway is considered."

Blog: Ecosia: Can technology solve climate change?

"We’re in this crisis because we burn fossil fuels, have cut down the majority of our forests, and raise billions of farm animals each year. Each of these activities releases greenhouse gases, such as CO2, that prevent heat from radiating back into space."

Yamamoto, Akitomo; et al. (2019): Glacial CO2 decrease and deep-water deoxygenation by iron fertilization from glaciogenic dust

Yamamoto, Akitomo; Abe-Ouchi, Ayako; Ohgaito, Rumi; Ito, Akinori; Oka, Akira (2019): Glacial CO2 decrease and deep-water deoxygenation by iron fertilization from glaciogenic dust. In Clim. Past Discuss. (under review). DOI: 10.5194/cp-2019-31.

"In this study, we report the significance of iron fertilization from glaciogenic dust for glacial CO2 decrease and deep-water deoxygenation using our numerical simulation, which successfully reproduces the magnitude and large-scale pattern of the observed oxygen changes from the present to Last Glacial Maximum."

C2G Blog: Altering the Climate: Youth and Communicating the Tough Decisions Ahead

"What would happen if someone had the option to spray “magical dust” in the atmosphere to bring down the global temperature, but with potentially dangerous consequences? The way people respond to this question isn’t always so obvious – and young people are no different."
