Nature: The race to remove CO 2 needs more contestants

"With the ongoing failure of emissions reduction to adequately address growing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2), increasing attention has focused on the possibility of conducting CO2 removal (CDR) from the atmosphere (‘negative emissions’). Indeed, modelling suggests that hundreds to thousands of gigatonnes (Gt) of CO2 will need to be removed over this century depending on global mean temperature goals and the success of emissions reduction."

Wired: The Side Effects of Solar Geoengineering Could Be Minimal

"It sounds like a drastic course of action: inject stuff high into Earth’s atmosphere to reflect a little sunlight and help counteract global warming. Then again, injecting a bunch of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere and warming the planet was pretty drastic, too."

The Conversation: Can we tweak marine chemistry to help stave off climate change?

"These foreboding trends have led to an increasing focus on ways to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Among the methods being explored is the use of the ocean to absorb and/or store carbon by adding crushed rocks or other sources of alkalinity to react with CO2 in seawater, ultimately consuming atmospheric CO2."
