Science: A world without clouds? Hardly clear, climate scientists say

"Could the sheets of gray clouds that hang low over the ocean disappear suddenly in a warming world? Yes, if you believe a study published yesterday in Nature Geoscience—and the amplifying media coverage of it. If atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) levels triple—an unlikely, but not implausible scenario given past rates of human emissions—these stratocumulus clouds could vanish in a frightening feedback loop. Fewer of the cooling clouds would mean a warmer Earth, which in turn would mean fewer clouds, leading to an 8°C jump in warming—a staggering, world-altering change."

The Times: Altering atmosphere ‘can tackle climate change’

"Tackling global warming by using an unproven method to manipulate the Earth’s atmosphere should be considered, a leading UN diplomat has said. Speaking in Dublin, Peter Thomson, UN special envoy for the ocean, said that the time was “fast coming” to have a debate about geoengineering, although it was not a substitute for other actions that could reduce greenhouse gas emissions."

The Japan Times: Geoengineering is a dangerous distraction

"Proponents advocate two main geoengineering strategies: carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and solar radiation modification (SRM). Both — along with most other geoengineering strategies — would depend on the widespread deployment of so-called carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), in which a suite of technologies captures carbon dioxide from industrial waste streams and stores it underground, in the oceans or in materials."

ABC News: Can geoengineering slow climate change, or will it be used as an excuse not to cut emissions?

"Global carbon levels from 2010 needed to be cut by almost half by 2030, limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, otherwise the world could be locked into catastrophic climate change. [...] But no matter how fast the world switches to renewable energy, the age of untested, high-risk geoengineering could soon be upon us. So what are the most likely fixes and would they really work?"

Grist: Paris Agreement has gone up in smoke, new paper says

"The paper in Nature Climate Change focuses on the Paris Agreement’s targets for “land use change.” Translation: farming in ways that sequester carbon, growing new trees and stopping deforestation. This stuff really matters because lots of countries’ pledges depend on these efforts. The European Union’s member states, for instance, rely on land use change for “up to 40 percent reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030,” the authors pointed out."
