Climeworks: Climeworks, ON Power and Carbfix lay the foundation to scale up carbon dioxide removal significantly to 4000 tons per year

"Climeworks has signed groundbreaking agreements with both Carbfix, carbon storage pioneers, and ON Power, the Icelandic geothermal energy provider, to lay the foundation for a new plant that will significantly scale-up carbon removal and storage in Iceland. The new plant will be able to permanently remove 4000 tons of carbon dioxide from the air per year."

Research Matters: Climate change is driving apple orchards higher up in the Himalayas, and geoengineering could be a stopgap

"A recent study, published in the journal Climatic Change, shows that spraying aerosols of sulphate particles into the atmosphere could block solar radiation and combat global warming. It suggests spraying into the stratosphere—a layer of our atmosphere extending up to 31 miles— to aid the apple cultivation of Himachal Pradesh."
