Di Jin; et al. (2020): The value of scientific research on the ocean's biological carbon pump

Di Jin; Hoagland, Porter; Buesseler, Ken O. (2020): The value of scientific research on the ocean's biological carbon pump. In Science of the Total Environment, p. 141357. DOI: 10.1016/j.scitotenv.2020.141357.

"Here, an analytical model of the economic effects of global carbon emissions—including scientific uncertainty about BCP sequestration—was developed to estimate the value of marine scientific research concerning sequestration."

C2G Guest Post: Building capacity for industry to engage with carbon removal via a Carbon Removal Playbook

"If the community is in agreement that a discourse about carbon removal is indeed justified, there is a need to create a more expansive, inclusive, multi-perspective dialogue about the realities, rather than the ideals, for removing carbon. In particular, there is a need to engage the players who are implicitly relied on to finance carbon removal."

Fabre, Adrien; et al. (2020): Availability of risky geoengineering can make an ambitious climate mitigation agreement more likely

Fabre, Adrien; Wagner, Gernot (2020): Availability of risky geoengineering can make an ambitious climate mitigation agreement more likely. In Humanit Soc Sci Commun 7 (1). DOI: 10.1057/s41599-020-0492-6.

"Some countries prefer high to low mitigation (H  L). Some prefer low to high (L  H). That fundamental disagreement is at the heart of the seeming intractability of negotiating a climate mitigation agreement. Modelling global climate negotiations as a weakest-link game brings this to the fore: Unless everyone prefers H to L, L wins. Enter geoengineering (G). Its risky and imperfect nature makes it arguably inferior to any country’s preferred mitigation outcome."

Video: Our Changing Climate: Could Geoengineering save us from climate change? (ft. @ClimateAdam)

"In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I join forces with @ClimateAdam to look at silver bullet geoengineering solutions to climate change. Specifically, we look at how silver bullet geoengineering ideas can be appealing in theory, but in practice they often have a lot of ethical, economic, and social drawbacks."

Stripe: Stripe’s first negative emissions purchases

"Last year, Stripe announced our Negative Emissions Commitment, pledging at least $1M per year to pay, at any price, for the direct removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and its sequestration in secure long-term storage. [...] Today, after a rigorous search and review by a panel of independent scientific experts[1], we’re excited to announce our first purchases."
