Cox, Emily; et al. (2021): But They Told Us It Was Safe! Carbon Dioxide Removal, Fracking, and Ripple Effects in Risk Perceptions

Cox, Emily; Pidgeon, Nick; Spence, Elspeth (2021): But They Told Us It Was Safe! Carbon Dioxide Removal, Fracking, and Ripple Effects in Risk Perceptions. In Risk analysis : an official publication of the Society for Risk Analysis. DOI: 10.1111/risa.13717.

"Using a secondary analysis of data from a series of deliberative workshops conducted with lay publics in the United Kingdom, we suggest that perceptions of CO2 removal technologies were negatively impacted by risk perceptions and recent policy decisions surrounding shale gas and fracking."

Cherry, Todd L.; et al. (2021): Does solar geoengineering crowd out climate change mitigation efforts? Evidence from a stated preference referendum on a carbon tax

Cherry, Todd L.; Kallbekken, Steffen; Kroll, Stephan; McEvoy, David M. (2021): Does solar geoengineering crowd out climate change mitigation efforts? Evidence from a stated preference referendum on a carbon tax. In Climatic Change 165 (1-2), pp. 1–8. DOI: 10.1007/s10584-021-03009-z.

"Adding to a limited body of empirical evidence, we use a survey experiment to estimate how informing the U.S. public about solar geoengineering impacts support for a proposed national carbon tax. In contrast to the crowding-out hypothesis, we find that respondents who are provided with information about geoengineering are significantly more likely to support the tax."

Stenzel, Fabian; et al. (2021): Irrigation of biomass plantations may globally increase water stress more than climate change

Stenzel, Fabian; Greve, Peter; Lucht, Wolfgang; Tramberend, Sylvia; Wada, Yoshihide; Gerten, Dieter (2021): Irrigation of biomass plantations may globally increase water stress more than climate change. In Nat Comms 12 (1), pp. 1–9. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-021-21640-3.

"Here we quantitatively assess potential side effects of BECCS with respect to water stress by disentangling the associated drivers (irrigated biomass plantations, climate, land use patterns) using comprehensive global model simulations."

Mateo, Diego; et al. (2021): Efficient Visible‐Light Driven Photothermal Conversion of CO 2 to Methane by Nickel Nanoparticles Supported on Barium Titanate

Mateo, Diego; Morlanes, Natalia; Maity, Partha; Shterk, Genrikh; Mohammed, Omar F.; Gascon, Jorge (2021): Efficient Visible‐Light Driven Photothermal Conversion of CO 2 to Methane by Nickel Nanoparticles Supported on Barium Titanate. In Adv. Funct. Mater. 31 (8), p. 2008244. DOI: 10.1002/adfm.202008244.

"Here, a new composite catalyst consisting of Ni nanoparticles supported on barium titanate that, under optimal reaction conditions, is able to hydrogenate CO2 to CH4 at nearly 100% selectivity with production rates as high as 103.7 mmol g–1 h–1 under both UV–visible and visible irradiation (production rate: 40.3 mmol g−1 h–1) is reported."

Pellegrini, Adam F. A.; et al. (2021): Decadal changes in fire frequencies shift tree communities and functional traits

Pellegrini, Adam F. A.; Refsland, Tyler; Averill, Colin; Terrer, César; Staver, A. Carla; Brockway, Dale G. et al. (2021): Decadal changes in fire frequencies shift tree communities and functional traits. In Nat Ecol Evol, pp. 1–9. DOI: 10.1038/s41559-021-01401-7.

"Here, we address the overall effects of fire on tree communities and the factors controlling their sensitivity in 29 sites that experienced multi-decadal alterations in fire frequencies in savanna and forest ecosystems across tropical and temperate regions."

Murray, Emily G.; et al. (2021): Will Individual Actions Do the Trick? Comparing Climate Change Mitigation through Geoengineering versus Reduced Vehicle Emissions

Murray, Emily G.; DiGiorgio, Andrea L. (2021): Will Individual Actions Do the Trick? Comparing Climate Change Mitigation through Geoengineering versus Reduced Vehicle Emissions. In Earth’s Future. DOI: 10.1029/2020EF001734.

"This paper considers how one individual action (reducing carbon dioxide emissions from gasoline‐fueled private vehicles), when adopted at a global scale, may have an effect that is comparable to the effects of geoengineering. This paper also argues that the role of geoengineering as a safeguard against climate change may be encouraging complacency and reducing motivation for individual action."
