Moderndiplomacy: The Existential Crisis of Global Warming and Carbon Capture

"Direct air carbon capture and storage (DACCS) is an enticing prospect until one examines the costs.  Scientific scenarios project DACCS capacity to remove 10-15 billion tons of CO2 per year by century’s end.  Optimists up it to 35-40 billion tons solving the CO2 problem in one fell swoop.  Not so, say those who have examined costs."

Yahoo Finance: CO2 Solutions Successfully Completes Commissioning of it First Commercial Carbon Capture Unit

"CO2 Solutions Inc. (the "Corporation") (CST.V) is pleased to report that, after only two weeks, it has successfully completed the commissioning of its first commercial carbon capture unit. The project, with Fibrek General Partnership, a subsidiary of Resolute Forest Products Inc. (RFP.TO) (RFP), and Serres Toundra Inc., involved the deployment of a 30-tonne per day (tpd) CO2 capture unit (the "Unit") and ancillary equipment at the RFP pulp mill in Saint-Félicien, Quebec and the commercial reuse of the captured CO2 by the adjacent Serres Toundra greenhouse facility."

The Engineer: Mechanical trees capture CO2 passively

"The technology involves discs of sorbent stacked in columns. When a column is fully extended, the discs are exposed to air and capture atmospheric CO2. Once full, the discs are them lowered back into the column where the CO2 is extracted and either sequestered or sold for commercial use."

Pacific Standard: The Billionaires' Guide to Hacking the Planet

"SRM refers to "solar radiation management," the most frequently discussed form of geoengineering, which involves injecting aerosols in the stratosphere to cool the planet—much like major volcanic eruptions do naturally. The other key term here is "unilateral action." This refers to the possibility that someone might simply take matters into his own hands."
