Podcast: Reviewer 2 does geoengineering: Matthew Watson discusses SRM, reflections on the SPICE project and the perils of being a scientist in this area

"Matt Watson talks about his experiences on the SPICE Project, the need for careful research into SRM given temperature rises and the slow pace of decarbonisation. He also explains how he dealt with a death threat that came during the SPICE project, an unexpected hazard for someone who is a volcanologist and also known from his blog as the reluctant geoengineer."

World Resources Institute: Leveraging the Ocean's Carbon Removal Potential

"As the need for climate action becomes more urgent, the ocean is gaining attention as a potential part of the solution. Approaches like investing in offshore energy production, conserving coastal ecosystems and increasing consumption of sustainable ocean-based protein offer opportunities to reduce emissions. In addition to these opportunities, a range of ocean-based carbon removal approaches could help capture and store billion of tons of carbon."
