The Conversation: Should we engineer the climate? A social scientist and natural scientist discuss

"Indeed, the spectre of climate engineering hung heavily over the recent United Nations climate conference in Katowice, COP24, having featured in several side events as negotiators agreed on how to implement the landmark 2015 Paris Agreement, but left many worried that it does not go far enough."

The Wire: Geoengineering: Should India Tread Carefully or Go Full Steam Ahead?

"Solar geoengineering doesn’t help reduce carbon emissions, and is founded on reckoning with the distressing possibility that reduction strategies won’t be enough."

The Conversation: COP24: here's what must be agreed to keep warming at 1.5°C

"The United Nations, in the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5ºC has accepted that there isn’t any obvious pathway to zero emissions in such a short time frame, so they have pegged their hopes on NETs – Negative Emissions Technologies. These approaches include carbon capture and storage (CCS), which involves sucking CO₂ from the air and storing it deep underground."

FiveThirtyEight: We Have Ways To Stop Rogue Scientists. They Don’t Always Work.

"The same week that news of He’s experiments came out, the journal Nature ran a story about a team at Harvard that is planning the first real-world experiments in geoengineering — releasing particles of calcium carbonate into the high atmosphere over part of the southwestern United States. It’s part of a project to develop a way to block sunlight and hopefully reduce the global average temperature (but not by too much). The tests could start as early as next year."

ANU TV: 2018 Negative Emissions Conference (Videos)

"Earth is warming at an unprecedented rate due to anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. This was recognised at the 2015 Paris Climate Convention (COP21) in 2015 who agreed to limit warming at 2°C or less. Emission reductions are essential to help mitigate further warming, but we are already likely to exceed this 2°C warming. In response, COP21 recognised that some form of ‘negative emissions’ is required to stay within the 2°C warming target."

npr: How 1 Company Pulls Carbon From The Air, Aiming To Avert A Climate Catastrophe

"At a major climate meeting in Poland, nearly 200 countries are trying to reach a deal on dramatically reducing carbon emissions. But a recent U.N. report found that may not be enough to avoid dangerous impacts from the warming climate. In fact, the world is falling so far short of what's needed, it said, that it may be necessary to pull massive amounts of carbon dioxide out of the air."
