Azimuth Blog: Geoengineering Report

Scientist's/engineer's blog reviewing CE. "I think we should start serious research on geoengineering schemes, including actual experiments, not just calculations and simulations. I think we should do this with an open mind about whether we’ll decide that these schemes are good ideas or bad."

Bickel, J. Eric (2013): Climate engineering and climate tipping-point scenarios

Bickel, J. Eric (2013): Climate engineering and climate tipping-point scenarios. In: Environ Syst Decis. (in press) DOI 10.1007/s10669-013-9435

"In this paper, we analyze the potential value of one climate engineering technology family, known as solar radiation management (SRM) to manage the risk of differing tipping-point scenarios. We find that adding SRM to a policy of emissions controls may be able to help manage the risk of climate tipping points and that its potential benefits are large."

globalwarmingisreal.com: Permaculture and Perennial Crops as a Geo-Engineering Strategy

"One idea, touted by permaculturist Mark Shepard, is to change the farming paradigm away from annual crops to perennial crops.  The concept of replanting crops every year is the norm in farming culture, but we don’t often stop to ask if that is the most efficient and environmentally friendly methodology."
