Huffpost: A Longshot 2020 Candidate Wants To Push Geoengineering Into The Climate Debate

"Geoengineering is a catch-all term for technologies that could counter the effects of global warming. Ideas range from the relatively benign, like sucking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere; to the quirky, like building berms at the base of Arctic glaciers to slow melting from the warming ocean; to the radical, such as solar radiation management, which involves spraying sulfur gases into the atmosphere to reflect the sun’s warming rays back into space."

Z6MAG: Clean Energy Company Partners With Big Oil Companies: An Irony

"Carbon Engineering (CE) gets investments from Bill Gates, BHP, Occidental Petroleum, and Chevron amounting to $68 million. CE is a Canadian clean energy company using Direct Air Capture technology to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. The CO2 captured by the company is then processed and reproduced into fuel. In theory, with this technology, the Earth will have a fighting chance against climate change."
