Hannah, Lee (2022): Chapter 21 - Mitigation: Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Sinks, and Solutions

Hannah, Lee (2022): Chapter 21 - Mitigation: Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Sinks, and Solutions. In Lee Jay Hannah (Ed.): Climate change biology. Third edition. London, [Amsterdam]: Academic Press, pp. 439–472.

"Stopping climate change requires much more than emissions reductions: it requires stabilizing atmospheric greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations. In the absence of large new additional sinks for CO2 and other GHGs, stabilization equates to reducing emissions nearly to zero. In turn, near-zero emissions means complete transition of the world's energy supply to renewable (non-CO2-emitting) sources. This is a huge task—one that will need to be accomplished in stages."

Sweet, Shannan K.; et al. (2021): Perceptions of naturalness predict US public support for Soil Carbon Storage as a climate solution

Sweet, Shannan K.; Schuldt, Jonathon P.; Lehmann, Johannes; Bossio, Deborah A.; Woolf, Dominic (2021): Perceptions of naturalness predict US public support for Soil Carbon Storage as a climate solution. In Climatic Change 166 (1-2), pp. 1–15. DOI: 10.1007/s10584-021-03121-0.

"We analyzed data from a national probability survey of 1222 US adults who reported believing in climate change at least “somewhat” to estimate public support for Soil Carbon Storage and how it compares to other leading Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) strategies."

CNN: This startup grows kelp then sinks it to pull carbon from the air

"One Maine-based startup, Running Tide Technologies, is experimenting with farming kelp, a type of seaweed, in an effort to pull carbon from the air and store it deep beneath the ocean floor, potentially giving the world another nature-based tool to curb climate change."
