Tuskegee University: New discovery by Tuskegee researchers holds promise for reducing climate change threats

"Researchers at Tuskegee University have modified and discovered new bio-based natural materials that could eliminate the harmful buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. They believe the use of naturally occurring nanocellulose holds the key to efficiently and cost-effectively mitigating carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases associated with rising global temperatures and extreme weather events."

The Economist: Sunshady business—the politics of geoengineering (Podcast)

"This future-gazing podcast series examines speculative scenarios and provocative prophecies. IF EFFORTS to cut emissions fall short, might some nations resort to solar geoengineering—building a sunshade in the stratosphere—to buy more time?"

Clean Air Task Force: CCS Could Reduce 49 Million Tonnes of CO2 Emissions From Coal & Gas Power Plants

"Incentivized by 45Q tax credits, CCS deployment in the U.S. power sector could help capture and store 49 million metric tonnes. This is equivalent to removing roughly 7 million cars off the road. In our scenario, the model chooses to build CCS only in the form of retrofits on existing coal and gas plants. The model also chooses to send all of the captured CO2 into storage through EOR implying that storage in saline reservoirs is economically less favorable in comparison."

Forum for Climate Engineering: Researching at the Top of a Slippery Slope?

"Does researching geoengineering—specifically, stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI)—lead us onto a slippery slope, at the bottom of which awaits the deployment of a morally objectionable technology? Should we perhaps abandon research now on account of the possibility that we’ll slide down such a slope? In a recent publication, I argued that we should be cognizant of the possibility for research into SAI to lead to objectionable deployment scenarios."
