Friedlingstein, Pierre; et al. (2020): Global Carbon Budget 2020

Friedlingstein, Pierre; O'Sullivan, Michael; Jones, Matthew W.; Andrew, Robbie M.; Hauck, Judith; Olsen, Are et al. (2020): Global Carbon Budget 2020. In Earth Syst. Sci. Data 12 (4), pp. 3269–3340. DOI: 10.5194/essd-12-3269-2020.

"Accurate assessment of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and their redistribution among the atmosphere, ocean, and terrestrial biosphere in a changing climate – the “global carbon budget” – is important to better understand the global carbon cycle, support the development of climate policies, and project future climate change. Here we describe and synthesize data sets and methodology to quantify the five major components of the global carbon budget and their uncertainties."

The Hill: Geoengineering must stay peaceful

"However, if the moral and ethical frame of geoengineering should shift from one of global benevolence where all stakeholders have a voice and international law applies, to one of national security and international law is dismissed, a climate arms race becomes more likely."
