Wheeling, K. (2019): Where Does the Carbon Go When Permafrost Coasts Erode?

Wheeling, Kate. 2019. “Where Does the Carbon Go When Permafrost Coasts Erode? - Eos.” Eos. November 7, 2019. https://eos.org/research-spotlights/where-does-the-carbon-go-when-permafrost-coasts-erode.

"‌Arctic coastlines have not been considered carefully in carbon cycles for long, but new research suggests that eroding permafrost may emit more greenhouse gases than previously thought."

Hulme, Mike (2019): Is it too late (to stop dangerous climate change)? An editorial

Hulme, Mike (2019): Is it too late (to stop dangerous climate change)? An editorial. In Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Climate Change. DOI: 10.1002/wcc.619.

"This editorial introduces a WIREs Climate Change Special Collection of nine Opinion Articles, each answering the question, “Is it too late (to stop dangerous climate change)?” Given the rising sense of urgency—and for some despair—to arrest climate change, the nine invited authors were asked to develop their own answer to this question, or indeed to challenge its framing. What might “too late” mean? Too late for what exactly, or for whom? What effect might the language of “too late” have on the public imagination, on political discourse, and on academic research?"

The Guardian: Most YouTube climate change videos 'oppose the consensus view'

"The results for the search terms climate, climate change, climate science and global warming mostly reflected the scientific consensus view. Allgaier said this was because many contained excerpts from TV news programmes or documentaries. The same could not be said for the results of searches related to chemtrails, climate engineering, climate hacking, climate manipulation, climate modification and geoengineering."

E&E News: GEOENGINEERING. Could experiments in the sky enlarge the ozone hole?

"Countries that form a working group for the Montreal Protocol are expected to begin debating a proposal to examine the risks and benefits of geoengineering next month in Bangkok. These are solutions that might help cool an overheated planet if global efforts to reduce human-caused greenhouse gas emissions fall short."

The Economist: Political economy suggests that geoengineering is likely to be used

"A much warmer and more hostile climate might yet be avoided, however, through geoengineering: tinkering with climate processes to reduce the global temperature. [...] The longer climate targets are missed, the more likely geoengineering is to be used—and the more urgent it is that governments understand its tricky political economy."

C2G2: Recalibrating our work after the UNEA resolution

"It’s been an eventful start of 2019 for C2G2, and more broadly, for governing emerging approaches and technologies to tackle the climate crisis. Perhaps it’s time to check whether, or to what extent, recalibrating our work could be helpful to further facilitate raising awareness, increasing learning, and expanding the conversation among actors."

C2G2: Time for the public to talk about geoengineering

"If we are to combat climate change, we need to look to other solutions, on top of cutting emissions and adapting. The third part of our overall package of solutions to climate change is geoengineering."
