Union of Concerned Scientists: Can Trees, Oceans and Giant Carbon Sucking Machines Save Us from Climate Catastrophe? (Blog)

"As we confront ever more obvious impacts of a warming world, we must immediately tackle the political and technical challenges of reducing the pollution causing climate change. And, just as actively, seek ways to remove, store and manage carbon to bring our climate back into balance."

Energypost.eu: A cheap Carbon Capture breakthrough? MOF molecular cages that trap CO2

"Carbon Capture is the Transition’s great unknown. Big targets have been set but nobody knows how we’re going to meet them. It’s clear we need utility-scale breakthroughs, and fast. And cheap. We take a look at one example of cutting edge research that could deliver both."

Bastin, J.; et al. (2019): The global tree restoration potential

Bastin, J.; Finegold, Y.; Garcia, C.; Mollicone, D.; Rezende, M.; Routh, D. et al. (2019): The global tree restoration potential. In: Science (New York, N.Y.) 365 (6448), S. 76–79. DOI: 10.1126/science.aax0848.

"The restoration of forested land at a global scale could help capture atmospheric carbon and mitigate climate change. Bastin et al. used direct measurements of forest cover to generate a model of forest restoration potential across the globe (see the Perspective by Chazdon and Brancalion)."

The Guardian: Tree planting 'has mind-blowing potential' to tackle climate crisis

"Planting billions of trees across the world is by far the biggest and cheapest way to tackle the climate crisis, according to scientists, who have made the first calculation of how many more trees could be planted without encroaching on crop land or urban areas."

Cox, E.; et al. (2019): Beyond carbon pricing: policy levers for negative emissions technologies

Cox, E.; Edwards, N. (2019): Beyond carbon pricing: policy levers for negative emissions technologies. In: Climate Policy 6 (38), p. 1–13. DOI: 10.1080/14693062.2019.1634509.

"This paper explores policies for Negative Emissions Technologies (NETs), in an attempt to move beyond the supply-side focus of the majority of NETs research, as well as the current dominance of carbon pricing as the main NETs policy proposal. The paper identifies a number of existing policies from four key areas – energy/transport, agriculture, sub-soil, and oceans – which will have an impact on three NETs: Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS), Direct Air Capture (DAC), and terrestrial Enhanced Rock Weathering (ERW)."
