BusinessGreen: Refreezing the poles and greening the oceans: Centre for Climate Repair launches in Cambridge

"Cambridge University has created a research unit dedicated to exploring radical approaches for repairing the Earth's climate, but concerns over geo-engineering remain.Refreezing the Earth's poles and removing CO2 from the atmosphere are just some of the potential global warming solutions that scientists from Cambridge University are to explore at a major new research centre in the city."

Independent Australia: Forests, logging and climate change

"THE INTERGOVERNMENTAL PANEL for Climate Change (IPCC) recommends that "natural solutions" are employed to deal with climate change emergency. The immediate protection and restoration of natural systems for carbon dioxide removal (CDR) are preferred to geo-engineering and B.E.C.C.S — burning biomass as a fossil fuel substitute while using some sort of carbon capture and storage."

New York Times: Start-Ups Hoping to Fight Climate Change Struggle as Other Tech Firms Cash In

"With the money he made selling his last start-up to Google, Matt Rogers has been investing in companies that are trying to fight climate change. Mr. Rogers, one of the founders of the digital thermostat company Nest, has put millions of dollars into start-ups whose goal is to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Carbon-removal technology, as it is known, is something that scientists have said will probably be necessary to avert an extreme increase in global temperatures."

C2G2: Should solar geoengineering research proceed?

"While solar geoengineering could limit some harmful climate impacts, these approaches could also have adverse impacts and would not address the root cause of climate change: rising emissions of heat-trapping gases from burning fossil fuels – or some of the resulting impacts, such as ocean acidification. We also know very little about how it could impact regional weather patterns, global politics, and efforts to curb global warming emissions."
