Policy Exchange: The US Can’t Go It Alone on Solar Geoengineering

"Smaller democracies should take a role in shaping solar geoengineering research and governance, say David Keith and Peter Irvine. Without them the challenges that solar geoengineering poses will be harder to tackle and the risks of mistrust and misuse will be greater."

Atlantic Council: Carbon capture in Germany: Long-overdue momentum is building

"It has been close to two years since German Chancellor Angela Merkel put carbon capture, removal, and storage back on the German policy agenda. However, for quite a while there was virtually no movement, even as Norway, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Germany’s own industrial giants moved ahead with funding and projects. The lack of progress was jarring, as the support for carbon capture technologies from the scientific community grew rapidly. Fortunately, over the past few months momentum has slowly built."

New Scientist: Carbon-negative crops may mean water shortages for 4.5 billion people

"Fabian Stenzel at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany and his colleagues project that the water needed to irrigate enough energy crops to stay under the 1.5°C limit would leave 4.58 billion people experiencing high water stress by 2100 – up from 2.28 billion today. That is 300 million more people than a scenario in which BECCS isn’t used at scale and warming spirals to a devastating 3°C."

Podcast: Radio Ecoshock: The Decade After Tomorrow

"Let’s just green the planet! We will reforest Earth to capture carbon dioxide that threatens the future. Official institutions are counting on that bio-capture and storage. But like so many big human ideas, this climate solution could make things worse. Our guest Fabian Stenzel is a PhD Student in Germany."
