TechCrunch: At what point do we admit that geoengineering is an option?

"We already know how to cool the planet without reducing carbon. The solution is so simple it’s almost laughable: just make our clouds a little more reflective, so they reflect more of the sun’s light, and thus reduce our heat."

Legal Planet: Another Possible Means To Keep Global Warming Within 1.5 Degrees Celsius

"There is also a set of proposed technologies that could keep global warming within these or other limits. Through these techniques, we could intentionally alter the earth’s radiative balance, cooling the planet and counteracting anthropogenic climate change. That is, we could make the planet more reflective, block some incoming sunlight, or increase the amount of outgoing infrared radiation."

Phys.org: Why we can't reverse climate change with 'negative emissions' technologies

"Featured prominently in the report is a discussion of a range of techniques for removing dioxide from the air, called Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) technologies or negative emissions technologies (NETs). The IPCC said the world would need to rely significantly on these techniques to avoid increasing Earth's temperatures above 1.5 degrees Celsius, or 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit, compared to pre-industrial levels."

Harvard University Blog: Reflections on the IPCC special report on pathways to and impacts of 1.5°C

"The main difference to previous reports issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is that this report focuses on the 1.5°C target, while the the Fifth Assessment Report did not pay much attention to it, largely because too few studies even addressed this ambitious scenario. The Paris Agreement and the request to the IPCC for this latest special report have changed this: more and more studies have considered how the goal could be achieved – with similar results, but greater urgency."

Science: Key climate panel, citing impending crisis, urges crash effort to reduce emissions

"A report released yesterday in Incheon, South Korea, by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says allowing the planet to warm by more than 1.5°C could have dire consequences, and that a speedy transformation of the world’s energy systems is needed to avoid breaching that limit, which is notably tighter than the target of 2°C cited in the Paris agreement of 2015. “Net [carbon dioxide] emissions at the global scale must reach zero by 2050,” said Valérie Masson-Delmotte, a climate scientist at France’s Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission in Paris and a key participant in drafting the report."

Quartz: The ultimate guide to negative-emission technologies

"The world has delayed reducing carbon emissions for so long that humanity will need to suck enormous amounts of carbon dioxide back out from the air to avoid catastrophic global warming. That’s one of the conclusions of a new report published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change."
