Niemeier, U.; et al. (2013): Solar irradiance reduction via climate engineering - Impact of different techniques on the energy balance and the hydrological cycle.

Niemeier, U.; Schmidt, H.; Alterskjaer, K.; Kristjánsson, J. E. (2013): Solar irradiance reduction via climate engineering - Impact of different techniques on the energy balance and the hydrological cycle. In J. Geophys. Res. Atmos., pp. n/a. DOI 10.1002/2013JD020445

"Different techniques of solar radiation management (SRM) have been suggested to counteract global warming, among them the injection of sulfur into the stratosphere, mirrors in space, and marine cloud brightening through artificial emissions of sea salt. This study focuses on to what extent climate impacts of these three methods would be different."

Lin, Brenda B.; et al. (2013): Maximizing the Environmental Benefits of Carbon Farming through Ecosystem Service Delivery

Lin, Brenda B.; Macfadyen, Sarina, et al. (2013): Maximizing the Environmental Benefits of Carbon Farming through Ecosystem Service Delivery. In BioScience 63 (10), pp. 793–803. DOI 10.1525/bio.2013.63.10.6. (pre-publication)

"Conversely, carbon farming, if it is not implemented carefully, can create disbenefits, such as increased land clearing, monoculture plantations replacing diverse remnants, and unintended impacts across national borders."

American Chemical Society: Artificial lung to remove carbon dioxide — from smokestacks

Reported on a meeting of the American Chemical Society. "The amazingly efficient lungs of birds and the swim bladders of fish have become the inspiration for a new filtering system to remove carbon dioxide from electric power station smokestacks before the main greenhouse gas can billow into the atmosphere and contribute to global climate change."
