Climeworks: Climeworks AG and Antecy B.V. are joining forces & thereby boosting technology portfolio

"Climeworks AG, Switzerland and Antecy B.V., the Netherlands share the same goal of removing climate-relevant amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere and joining forces renders this goal more achievable. The combination of their technologies will result in even more powerful solutions for both carbon dioxide removal, as well as direct air capture and CO2 utilization."

Collomb, J.-D. (2019): US Conservative and Libertarian Experts and Solar Geoengineering: An Assessment

Collomb, Jean-Daniel (2019): US Conservative and Libertarian Experts and Solar Geoengineering: An Assessment. In: European journal of American studies (14-2). Online verfügbar unter http://journals.openedition.org/ejas/pdf/14717.

"The goal of this article is to review the various positions taken by free-market conservative and libertarian public policy experts regarding solar geoengineering. A quantitative analysis and a qualitative analysis of the online publications of ten major free-market think tanks are provided with a view to determining whether free-market conservative and libertarian experts are embracing solar geoengineering as a key solution to climate change."

Ogle, S.; et al. (2019): Climate and Soil Characteristics Determine Where No-Till Management Can Store Carbon in Soils and Mitigate Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Ogle, Stephen M.; Alsaker, Cody; Baldock, Jeff; Bernoux, Martial; Breidt, F. Jay; McConkey, Brian et al. (2019): Climate and Soil Characteristics Determine Where No-Till Management Can Store Carbon in Soils and Mitigate Greenhouse Gas Emissions. In Sci Rep 9 (1), pp. 1–8. DOI: 10.1038/s41598-019-47861-7.

"We evaluated the body of literature surrounding this practice, and found that SOC storage can be higher under no-till management in some soil types and climatic conditions even with redistribution of SOC, and contribute to reducing net greenhouse gas emissions."

Field, M. (2019): The world can support far more trees. Planting them can reduce carbon pollution a lot: An interview with professor Tom Crowther

Field, Matt (2019): The world can support far more trees. Planting them can reduce carbon pollution a lot: An interview with professor Tom Crowther. In Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists 75 (5), pp. 236–238. DOI: 10.1080/00963402.2019.1654267.

"An interview with professor Tom Crowther of ETH Zurich, one of the authors of a Science article suggesting that re-forestation may be the most effective action countries can take to combat climate change. Planting trees on treeless, non-agricultural, non-urban land at the scale the group suggests could bring carbon pollution down to a level not seen in a century."
