ANU TV: 2018 Negative Emissions Conference (Videos)

"Earth is warming at an unprecedented rate due to anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. This was recognised at the 2015 Paris Climate Convention (COP21) in 2015 who agreed to limit warming at 2°C or less. Emission reductions are essential to help mitigate further warming, but we are already likely to exceed this 2°C warming. In response, COP21 recognised that some form of ‘negative emissions’ is required to stay within the 2°C warming target."

npr: How 1 Company Pulls Carbon From The Air, Aiming To Avert A Climate Catastrophe

"At a major climate meeting in Poland, nearly 200 countries are trying to reach a deal on dramatically reducing carbon emissions. But a recent U.N. report found that may not be enough to avoid dangerous impacts from the warming climate. In fact, the world is falling so far short of what's needed, it said, that it may be necessary to pull massive amounts of carbon dioxide out of the air."

Independent: First ever sun-dimming experiment will mimic volcanic eruption in attempt to reverse global warming

"Scientists plan to mimic the effects of a massive volcanic eruption in a bid to tackle global warming. Plans to geoengineer the atmosphere by blocking out sunlight have been floated before, but an experiment launched next year by Harvard researchers will be the first to test the theory in the stratosphere."

New Security Beat: Panelists Call for Creation of World Commission to Handle Solar Radiation Management

"'Right now, it’s the Wild West in regard to governance with geoengineering,' said Paul Wapner, a professor at the School of International Service at American University at a recent panel about solar radiation management (SRM) at the Arizona State University’s Washington Center. According to the Governing Solar Radiation Management report which was the focus of the event, SRM, which theoretically would cool the planet by reflecting sunlight back into space, may be a viable last-resort option if climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts fail. Wapner said that 'there’s a danger in SRM, there’s a danger in climate change. And, balancing those risks is part of the exercise and will continue to be part of the exercise.'"

Nature: Global warming will happen faster than we think

"Prepare for the “new abnormal”. That was what California Governor Jerry Brown told reporters last month, commenting on the deadly wildfires that have plagued the state this year. He’s right. California’s latest crisis builds on years of record-breaking droughts and heatwaves. [...] Such environmental disasters will only intensify. Governments, rightly, want to know what to do. Yet the climate-science community is struggling to offer useful answers."
