Mongabay: Retrofitting coal power plants with carbon capture may lead to increased water stress

"As much as 32 percent of the world’s coal-fired power plants globally are exposed to water scarcity for at least five months per year. 15 percent of those power plants are in India, a study has said."

Camuzeaux, J.; et al. (2020): India in the coming 'climate G2'?

Camuzeaux, Jonathan, Thomas Sterner, and Gernot Wagner (2020): India in the coming 'climate G2'? National Institute Economic Review 251 (February): R3–12. https://doi.org/10.1017/nie.2020.2.

‌"We create a hypothetical global carbon market based on modelling emissions reduction commitments across countries and regions relative to their marginal abatement costs. We then analyse net financial flows across a wide range of burden-sharing agreements, from pure ‘grandfathering’ based on current emissions to equal-per-capita allocation. Among the four largest players – the United States, the EU-27, China, and India – it is China that would currently be the largest net seller of emissions allowances in all but the grandfathered scenario. The United States would be the largest net buyer. However, India is poised to take China’s position by around 2030. That leaves the United States and India as the two major countries with most to gain and lose, depending on the type of climate deal reached."

Bala, Govindasamy; Gupta, Akhilesh (2017): Geoengineering and India

Bala, Govindasamy; Gupta, Akhilesh (2017): Geoengineering and India. Meeting Report 113 (3), pp. 376–377.

"Hence, the Department of Science and Technology (DST) has recently launched a Major R&D project (MRDP) at Centre for Amospheric and Oceanic Sciences (CAOS), Indian Institute of Science (IISc) to undertake climate modelling experiments in order to generate strategic knowledge on stratospheric aerosol geoengineering. The primary objective of convening the roundtable discussion on geoengineering was to seek views of the experts and policy makers on the issue of whether and how geoengineering is likely to impact India."

straigt.com: Gwynne Dyer: Geo-engineering is in trouble

Response to Ferraro, Angus J.; et al. (2014). "We did have a fall-back position, which was to counter the warming by geo-engineering—but now the leading technique for geo-engineering also looks like it will not work."
