Phys.org: Crisis management: Seven ways to engineer climate

"'Plan A' remains tackling the problem at its source. But a major UN climate science report released in South Korea on Monday makes it clear that slashing carbon pollution—even drastically—won't be enough to keep Earth from seriously overheating."

news.com.au: Extreme measures the world may have to consider if it doesn’t act on climate change

"THE world seems incapable of taking decisive action on climate change but we may soon have to consider some bizarre options to stop global warming if we fail to act. The Paris Agreement sets a target of well under 2 degrees celsius warming and researchers decided to look at how much it would cost to achieve this target, and the more ambitious target of 1.5C, as well as what the potential benefits were."

Physicsworld: No need for BECCS?

"Global warming can be kept to below 1.5 °C above pre-industrial temperatures without using Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS), or at least not much. So says a study in Nature Climate Change. Whereas the IPCC, IEA and others have suggested that negative emission technologies like BECCS would be vital, the new paper claims that a range of ambitious mitigation options can minimize or, collectively, eliminate the need for BECCS."

Torvanger, A. (2018): Governance of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS): accounting, rewarding, and the Paris agreement

Torvanger, Asbjørn (2018): Governance of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS): accounting, rewarding, and the Paris agreement. In: Climate Policy, S. 1–13. DOI: 10.1080/14693062.2018.1509044.

"This study aims to identify pragmatic ways forward for BECCS, through synthesizing the literature relevant to accounting and rewarding BECCS, and its relation to the Paris Agreement. BECCS is divided into its two elements: biomass and CCS."

Mulligan, J.; et al. (2018): Technological Carbon Removal in the United States

Mulligan, J.; Ellison, G.; Levin K.; McCormick C. (2018): Technological Carbon Removal in the United States. Editor World Resource Institute. Online verfügbar unter https://wriorg.s3.amazonaws.com/s3fs-public/technological-carbon-removal-united-states.pdf, 13.09.2018.

"The purpose of this working paper is to explore the potential for technological carbon removal in the United States, identify needs likely to arise on the pathway to large-scale deployment, and consider ways to begin addressing those needs. This working paper is part of a World Resources Institute (WRI) publication series CarbonShot: Creat­ing Options for Carbon Removal at Scale in the United States."

Project: Bay Area Climate Restoration Initiatives

"The San Francisco Bay Area hosts a growing ecosystem of projects, organizations, and companies going beyond the Paris Climate Agreement goals to reverse global warming and restore our climate. They're exploring what's possible, what works, and in some cases what's profitable. his directory, curated by the Healthy Climate Alliance, lists the Bay Area projects, organizations, companies, and supporting institutions that are working to: 1. Draw down carbon 2. Reverse global warming 3. Rebuild Arctic ice 4. Restore a healthy climate "

fern: Six problems with BECCS

"Years of inaction have meant that climate scientists are no longer just discussing the need to reduce emissions, they are also talking about having to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Known as negative emissions, carbon dioxide removals are now at the centre of the climate conversation. Governments are responding by looking for technological fixes, and one of the most often discussed is Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS)."
