C2G: Working with nature, so nature can work with us

"In societies that had started to separate humans from the natural world, people are returning to the notion that nature is something we are part of, integrally, which offers indispensable solutions to the multiple crises we face – including climate change. (Of course, there are many who never lost this understanding.)"

Palo Alto Online: We are testing geoengineering, and that is a good thing

"I had a fascinating discussion about this topic with Thomas Ackerman, Professor Emeritus of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington, in the context of a solar geoengineering technique called marine cloud brightening. I will give a quick overview of that approach and then dig into some of the testing considerations."

Video: Assessing Carbon Removal webinar series: Governance of Marine Geoengineering

"In this webinar, Kerryn Brent, University of Adelaide; Wil Burns, Co-Director of the Institute for Carbon Removal Law & Policy; and Jeffrey McGee, University of Tasmania will discuss the potential role of marine climate geoengineering approaches such as ocean alkalinity enhancement and "blue carbon." Focusing on the governance of marine geoengineering research and deployment, along with potential risks of this approach, this webinar come on the heels of CIGI's Special Report on the topic authored by Brent, Burns, and McGee."

Park, Chang‐Eui; et al. (2019): Inequal Responses of Drylands to Radiative Forcing Geoengineering Methods

Park, Chang‐Eui, Su‐Jong Jeong, Yuanchao Fan, Jerry Tjiputra, Helene Muri, and Chunmiao Zheng (2019): Inequal Responses of Drylands to Radiative Forcing Geoengineering Methods. Geophysical Research Letters, December. https://doi.org/10.1029/2019gl084210.

‌"We show noticeable inequality in the responses of drylands when three radiative forcing geoengineering (RFG) methodologies—cirrus cloud thinning (CCT), marine sky brightening (MSB), and stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI)—individually reduce the radiative forcing of the representative concentration pathway 8.5 scenario using a set of the Norwegian Earth system model (NorESM1‐ME) experiments."
