Article on the report Center for Carbon Removal (2016): Philanthropy Beyond Carbon Neutrality. "Between 2008 and 2014, foundations donated an average of less than $1 million a year to projects or programs dedicated to carbon removal, according to Philanthropy Beyond Carbon Neutrality, an excellent new report from the Center for Carbon Removal. That’s less than 0.5 percent of their annual climate-change giving. To put that in context, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the largest climate-change grant-maker, spent more than $663 million on climate programs between 2008 and 2014."

Fern: What does the Paris climate agreement mean for forests and forest peoples’ rights?

"However, the long-term goal, and indeed much of the Paris Agreement, could also open the door to a form of geoengineering, known as carbon dioxide removal (CDR), if large-scale monoculture plantations or bioenergy crops with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) were used to remove significant volumes of carbon from the atmosphere."

Everything and the Carbon Sink Blog: Throwing the Carbon Capture Baby out with the Coal Bath Water

Mostly on CCS. "The environmental advocacy group Greenpeace recently released a report lambasting carbon capture and storage (or “CCS”) as “a false climate solution” that “[i]n no uncertain terms…hurts the climate.” The Greenpeace analysis, however, made a number of assumptions that fit the conventional wisdom surrounding CCS, but when analyzed with greater scrutiny turn out to be deceptively misleading."

FCEA Blog: One Good Reason Why the Left Should Give Geoengineering a Second Look

"While a more realistic implementation of geoengineering would still inevitably entail costs, there is a reasonable chance that these would be more than offset by benefits in terms of reduced climate impacts of the sort described above. How the ledger is likely to balance out globally, and particularly for the global South, is unknown, yet that is precisely the reason why more research on solar geoengineering is so urgently needed."

Earth Day Network: Chemotherapy for the Climate-RFF Reviews Climate Engineering

"Ultimately, any geoengineering project will have to be supplemented by other measures, as even raising the albedo, or reflectivity, of the atmosphere will not be able to stop ocean acidification, trash pile-up, or any number of other difficulties which have emerged over the past several decades that have yet to be addressed. Overall, geoengineering is presented as a solution with harmful effects that nevertheless may be necessary in an emergency."
