The Hill: Carbon capture, utilization, and storage under the Paris Agreement

"Almost every international climate change scenario under the 2015 Paris Agreement shows the need for an enormous ramp-up of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technologies to meet global goals. Timing matters, not just scale."

Craik, N.; et al. (2019): Climate Engineering Under the Paris Agreement

Craik, Neil and William C.G. Burns (2019): Climate Engineering Under the Paris Agreement. In Environmental Law Reporter 49 (12), November 27, 2019. https://elr.info/news-analysis/49/11113/climate-engineering-under-paris-agreement.

‌"In light of the prominent, albeit contested, role that CE is likely to play in international climate policy, this Article analyzes the specific provisions of the Paris Agreement with a view to assessing the extent to which the Agreement can provide an institutional framework to effectively govern CE internationally, and how it may shape the development and implementation of CE options."

Rogelj, J.; et al. (2019): A new scenario logic for the Paris Agreement long-term temperature goal

Rogelj, Joeri; Huppmann, Daniel; Krey, Volker; Riahi, Keywan; Clarke, Leon; Gidden, Matthew et al. (2019): A new scenario logic for the Paris Agreement long-term temperature goal. In: Nature 573 (7774), S. 357–363. DOI: 10.1038/s41586-019-1541-4.

"The approach proposed here closely mirrors the intentions of the United Nations Paris Agreement, and makes questions of intergenerational equity into explicit design choices."

Daggash, H.; et al. (2019): Higher Carbon Prices on Emissions Alone Will Not Deliver the Paris Agreement

Daggash, Habiba Ahut; Mac Dowell, Niall (2019): Higher Carbon Prices on Emissions Alone Will Not Deliver the Paris Agreement. In: Joule. DOI: 10.1016/j.joule.2019.08.008.

"We investigate the effectiveness of carbon prices in achieving the deep decarbonization needed in the power system. We find that if only CO 2 emitters are penalized, increasing prices to the social cost of carbon is sufficient to achieve a decarbonized system in the medium-term but not maintain it in the long-term."

Science: Promises and perils of the Paris Agreement

"Under the Paris Agreement, member states decide individually, in the form of nationally determined contributions (NDCs), what actions they will commit to taking toward the common goal of climate risk reduction. This institutional innovation offers a much-needed source of democratic renewal for global climate politics."

World Politics Review: Geoengineering is inevitable in the face of climate change. But at what cost?

"In the face of this looming threat, climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts are necessary but insufficient. Humanity must also consider a third option it has long resisted: geoengineering, or the deliberate, large-scale manipulation of the planetary environment."

The Guardian: Katharine Hayhoe: 'A thermometer is not liberal or conservative'

"One solution being discussed is the idea of deliberately geoengineering the planet to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and/or cool the planet. I believe it is important to discuss and study these technologies very thoroughly, because implementing some of them, like solar radiation management [spraying particles into the air to simulate a volcanic eruption and block some of the sunlight reaching Earth], is extremely risky."
