The Conversation: COP24: rewilding is essential to the UK’s commitments on climate change

"Humans have cut down half the trees on Earth since the dawn of agriculture – over 3 trillion of them. This huge loss holds the potential for massive reforestation today, which would protect local environments from soil loss, flash flooding and desertification and take up large quantities of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Despite these advantages, reforestation gets very little attention in our fight against climate change."

Earther: No, Scientists Didn’t Just Suggest We ‘Dim the Sun’ to Stop Climate Change

"Reports last week of a new paper from researchers at Yale and Harvard proposing “sun-dimming” to mitigate climate change sure sounded alarming. Trouble is, those reports misconstrued the cited research, which made no suggestion that we actually engage in so-called solar geoengineering."

Oil and Gas Climate Initiative: OGCI Climate Investments announces progression of the UK’s first commercial full-chain Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage Project

"OGCI Climate Investments announced today that it is entering into a strategic partnership with BP, ENI, Equinor, Occidental Petroleum, Shell and Total to progress the Clean Gas Project, the UK’s first commercial full-chain Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage (CCUS) project in Teesside. The Clean Gas Project could form the heart of the Tees Valley CCUS Cluster that will deploy commercially viable, safe, environmentally responsible CCUS at scale. It will combine CO2 capture from new efficient low-carbon power generation and local industrial emitters in Teesside. The project is a result of collaboration between OGCI Climate Investments, its member companies, central and local government and local industry."

LegalPlanet: Don’t Believe Everything That You Read

"If you had followed the climate change news over the weekend, you might have been shocked to see headlines such as 'Scientists Prescribe a Healthy Dose of Sulphate Particles to Promote Global Cooling on the Cheap.' CNN tweeted that 'Harvard and Yale scientists are proposing that we tackle climate change by dimming the sun.' And the British tabloid The Express shouted 'GLOBAL WARMING SOLVED: Plans to DIM Sun by releasing CHEMICALS into atmosphere.' Such exaggerations — both positive and negative — are unfortunately common in media coverage of solar geoengineering."

Nature: First sun-dimming experiment will test a way to cool Earth

"Zhen Dai holds up a small glass tube coated with a white powder: calcium carbonate, a ubiquitous compound used in everything from paper and cement to toothpaste and cake mixes. Plop a tablet of it into water, and the result is a fizzy antacid that calms the stomach. The question for Dai, a doctoral candidate at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and her colleagues is whether this innocuous substance could also help humanity to relieve the ultimate case of indigestion: global warming caused by greenhouse-gas pollution."
