C2GTalk: An interview with Ambassador Elizabeth Thompson Are we going to be at the table when climate-altering approaches are considered?

"Island peoples may well consider climate-altering approaches, like carbon dioxide removal and solar radiation modification, because of the existential threat posed by climate change, said Ambassador Elizabeth Thompson during a C2GTalk interview. One of the main challenges, in her view, is how to ensure that the most vulnerable will have a seat at the table when these approaches are considered."

Heinrich Böll Stiftung (2020): A Societal Transformation Scenario for Staying Below 1.5°C. A study by Kai Kuhnhenn, Luis Costa, Eva Mahnke, Linda Schneider, Steffen Lange

Heinrich Böll Stiftung (2020): A Societal Transformation Scenario for Staying Below 1.5°C. A study by Kai Kuhnhenn, Luis Costa, Eva Mahnke, Linda Schneider, Steffen Lange. Edited by Heinrich Böll Foundation and Konzeptwerk Neue Ökonomie 2020 (Schriften zu Wirtschaft und Soziales, 23).

"Together with researchers from engineering and the natural and social sciences, Heinrich Böll Foundation and Konzeptwerk Neue Ökonomie developed a «Societal Transformation Scenario» for this publication – a global climate mitigation scenario that explores the climate effects of limiting global production and consumptions and of envisioning a broader societal transformation to accompany these transformations to reach a good life for all."

Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences: Laboratory experiments on particles for solar geoengineering demonstrate limits of models

"Injecting light-reflecting aerosols into the stratosphere — known as solar geoengineering —could be used in conjunction with emissions reduction to lower the risks of a climate change and cool the planet.  But deliberately introducing particles into the atmosphere may also carry significant risks, and those dangers may increase depending on what aerosols are used. Sulfate aerosols, for example, could contribute to ozone damage and stratospheric heating."
