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."

The Conversation: Time is running out on climate change, but geoengineering has dangers of its own

"We have just 12 years left to reduce emissions and achieve the Paris Agreement’s highest ambition of limiting warming to 1.5°C. We have been warned, repeatedly, of the high stakes of our present climate gamble. If we continue on our current course, radical solutions are going to be needed sooner rather than later."

Science Business: NTNU: Geoengineering, other technologies won’t solve climate woes

"The countries of the world still need to cut their carbon dioxide emissions to reach the Paris Agreement’s climate targets. Relying on tree planting and alternative technological solutions such as geoengineering will not make enough of a difference."

Lawrence, M. G.; et al. (2018): Evaluating climate geoengineering proposals in the context of the Paris Agreement temperature goals

Lawrence, M. G.; Schäfer, S.; Muri, H.; Scott, V.; Oschlies, A.; Vaughan, N. et al. (2018): Evaluating climate geoengineering proposals in the context of the Paris Agreement temperature goals. In: Nat Comms 9 (1), p. 3734. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-05938-3.

"Current mitigation efforts and existing future commitments are inadequate to accomplish the Paris Agreement temperature goals. In light of this, research and debate are intensifying on the possibilities of additionally employing proposed climate geoengineering technologies, either through atmospheric carbon dioxide removal or farther-reaching interventions altering the Earth’s radiative energy budget."
