Science News: What’s coming up in 2019

"A geoengineering technique to curb global warming by temporarily dimming the sun's rays could get its first, modest field experiment this year. In solar geoengineering, vast amounts of reflective aerosol particles would be sprayed into the high atmosphere, mimicking the cooling effects of volcanic eruptions."

E&E News: Here's the research to watch in 2019

"Amid concern about the Paris Agreement's rapidly approaching global climate targets, geoengineering is a growing area of focus. One widely discussed, but highly controversial, hypothetical proposal involves spraying reflective aerosols into the atmosphere to beam sunlight away and cool the planet. It's called solar radiation management, or solar geoengineering."

blockchainreporter.: Exclusive: Interview with Paul Gambil, Founder and CEO of Nori

"[...] The Nori carbon removal certificate is a way for people to verifiably remove CO2 and get paid for doing so. Our vision is to create a positive feedback loop of ever growing incentives for more and more people and companies to invest in removing CO2 from the atmosphere. If we make reversing climate change a profitable endeavor, then we’ll actually be able to solve the problem at a grassroots level. No more waiting around for policymakers and voters to make up their minds."

The Guardian: Katharine Hayhoe: 'A thermometer is not liberal or conservative'

"One solution being discussed is the idea of deliberately geoengineering the planet to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and/or cool the planet. I believe it is important to discuss and study these technologies very thoroughly, because implementing some of them, like solar radiation management [spraying particles into the air to simulate a volcanic eruption and block some of the sunlight reaching Earth], is extremely risky."

Science: Rise of carbon dioxide–absorbing mountains in tropics may set thermostat for global climate

"Hate the cold? Blame Indonesia. It may sound odd, given the contributions to global warming from the country’s 270 million people, rampant deforestation, and frequent carbon dioxide (CO2)-belching volcanic eruptions. But over much longer times, Indonesia is sucking CO2 out of the atmosphere."

The Wire: India Should Demand International, Political Oversight for Geoengineering R&D

"Multilateral climate negotiations led by the UN have ended on disappointing notes of late. This has prompted climate scientists to weigh the pros and cons of climate geoengineering. Indian scientists, policymakers, and the public must also engage in these debates, especially given the potentially major implications of geoengineering for the monsoons in South Asia and Africa."

FP Argument: The Hazard of Environmental Morality

"One pillar of conservative policy doctrine is that moral hazards should be avoided at all costs. Criticisms of universal health care, for example, are based on the idea that shielding individuals from some of the consequences of their decisions creates an incentive for riskier behavior."
