EFI: Carbon Capture Fact Sheet

"Let’s start with why we want to capture carbon dioxide: CO2is the gas most responsible for globalwarming. The level of CO2measured in our atmosphere is at the highest level in recorded history andcan stay there for millennia. Carbon capture technologies exist but can be expensive to deploy. Thechallenge is finding what works and doing it cheaply."

Phys.org: This is what you need to know about carbon capture and storage

"Why is there so much talk about storing CO2 underground? Doesn't it cost more than it's worth? Here we provide the research scientists' answers and explanations of why CCS is climate technology that we are completely dependent on."

Wang, Jiajie; et al. (2018): Simultaneous H2 Production with Carbon Storage by Enhanced Olivine Weathering in Laboratory-scale: An Investigation of CO2 Effect

Wang, Jiajie; Nakamura, Kengo; Watanabe, Noriaki; Okamoto, Atsushi; Komai, Takeshi (2018): Simultaneous H2 Production with Carbon Storage by Enhanced Olivine Weathering in Laboratory-scale: An Investigation of CO2 Effect. In : The Second International Conference on Materials Chemistry and Environmental Protection. The Second International Conference on Materials Chemistry and Environmental Protection. Sanya, China, 23.11.2018 - 25.11.2018: SCITEPRESS - Science and Technology Publications, pp. 83–87.

"This study suggests simultaneous multiple energy productions and CO2 storage can be realized by olivine weathering process when using a CO2-rich hydrothermal condition."

Fiekowsky, Peter; et al. (2019): Climate Restoration: Solutions to the Greatest Threat Facing Humanity and Nature Today. The Foundation for Climate Restoration, September 2019. White Paper.

Fiekowsky, Peter; Douglis, Carole; Lee, Susan (2019): Climate Restoration: Solutions to the Greatest Threat Facing Humanity and Nature Today. The Foundation for Climate Restoration, September 2019. White Paper. Available online at https://foundationforclimaterestoration.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/20190916b_f4cr4_white-paper.pdf.

"The purpose of this paper is to show that we do not in fact need to leave dangerous, unprecedented conditions to our progeny. We have the technology and the financing, now, to reclaim the climate of over a century ago. What we need is the commitment to do so."

Legal Planet: Can Soils Solve Climate Change?

"A few months ago, I questioned a claim that planting trees could solve climate change. According to some scientists, reforestation “is by far the cheapest solution that has ever been proposed,” and for $300 billion it could sequester 200 gigatons of carbon (GtC, or 733 GtCO2). Many media outlets swooned, but the assertions were weak if not incorrect. Indeed, just this week, Science — the original outlet — published four scathing critiques of the underlying scientific paper."
