World Resources Institute: 2020 Could Be the Year Carbon Removal Takes Off

"Recent advances in policy, technology, and on-the-ground projects show that the field of carbon removal, including both nature-based approaches and cutting-edge carbon capture technologies, is quickly heating up. But how do we translate that momentum into decisive action in 2020?"

Earth & Space News: Anaerobic Activity Is a Big Contributor in Marine “Dead Zones”

"Certain parts of Earth’s oceans are so oxygen depleted that they can hardly sustain life. Climate models predict that these “dead zones” will expand as global warming progresses, affecting ecosystems, fisheries, and the climate itself. Now Lengger et al. provide new evidence that such predictions do not adequately account for the activity of anaerobic microbes that consume inorganic carbon within dead zones."

PR Newswire: Santa Clara County, Earth Day Network, and Foundation for Climate Restoration Announce Launch of "Local Governments for Climate Restoration" Campaign

"With climate restoration as the underlying framework, all jurisdictions can pledge that 100 percent of their electrical power originates from clean renewable sources, that they commit to Building Electrification "Reach Codes" that call for all-electric buildings and electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure during the new construction process, and that they incorporate carbon-negative building materials, including low embodied emissions in concrete to restore our atmospheric carbon dioxide to preindustrial levels."

Cheng, Lijing; et al. (2020): Record-Setting Ocean Warmth Continued in 2019

Cheng, Lijing; Abraham, John; Zhu, Jiang; Trenberth, Kevin E.; Fasullo, John; Boyer, Tim et al. (2020): Record-Setting Ocean Warmth Continued in 2019. In Adv. Atmos. Sci. 37 (2), pp. 137–142. DOI: 10.1007/s00376-020-9283-7.

"Because the oceans are the main repository of the Earth’s energy imbalance, measuring ocean heat content (OHC) is one of the best way to quantify the rate of global warming (Trenberth et al., 2016; Von Schuckmann et al., 2016; Cheng et al., 2018). Following reports released in the previous two years (Cheng and Zhu, 2018; Cheng et al., 2019c), this article presents new OHC data for the year 2019. These data reveal that the world’s oceans (especially at upper 2000 m) in 2019 were the warmest in recorded human history."
