Podcast: Clean Technica: Machine Learning + CleanTech + Climate Risks, Part II — CleanTech Talk Podcast

"Mike then moved the conversation toward geoengineering, which Paul believes needs more attention. Mike sees a fundamental problem in pretending like the world could geoengineer its way out of climate change without causing other problems, whereas Paul thinks there is a balance to be found."

The Narwhal: Meet the Canadian farmers fighting climate change

"Conservation and agriculture have often been at odds. But as Ottawa develops the first federal carbon offset standard, farming techniques that reduce greenhouse gas emissions are having a moment."

Gosnell, Hannah; et al. (2020): Climate change mitigation as a co-benefit of regenerative ranching: insights from Australia and the United States

Gosnell, Hannah; Charnley, Susan; Stanley, Paige (2020): Climate change mitigation as a co-benefit of regenerative ranching: insights from Australia and the United States. In Interface Focus. 10 (5), p. 20200027. DOI: 10.1098/rsfs.2020.0027.

"In this paper, we explore principles and practices associated with the larger enterprise of ‘regenerative ranching’ (RR), which includes managed grazing but infuses the practice with holistic decision-making. We argue that this broader approach is appealing due to a suite of ecological, economic and social benefits, making climate change mitigation an afterthought, or ‘co-benefit’."

Taillardat, Pierre; et al. (2020): Climate change mitigation potential of wetlands and the cost-effectiveness of their restoration

Taillardat, Pierre; Thompson, Benjamin S.; Garneau, Michelle; Trottier, Karelle; Friess, Daniel A. (2020): Climate change mitigation potential of wetlands and the cost-effectiveness of their restoration. In Interface Focus. 10 (5), p. 20190129. DOI: 10.1098/rsfs.2019.0129.

"Here, we conducted a meta-analysis on wetland carbon dynamics to (i) determine their impact on climate using different metrics and time horizons, (ii) investigate the cost-effectiveness of wetland restoration for climate change mitigation, and (iii) discuss their suitability for inclusion in climate policy as negative emission technologies."

Independent: We mapped the world’s carbon-storing frozen peatlands and made a disturbing discovery

"These new findings further reinforce how urgent it is to rapidly reduce our emissions, as the only way to stop permafrost thaw is to limit global warming. There are no geoengineering solutions that can be deployed in these vast and remote areas."

The Hill: Farm and forest carbon incentives can help climate and rural economies

"American forests already absorb the equivalent of about 15 percent of our annual carbon dioxide emissions. Maintaining and enhancing these "carbon sinks" will be critical to both climate protection and to help the economies of hard-hit rural areas, with the potential to create large numbers of new jobs."

Job: Research Associate (Fixed Term) at the Cambridge Judge Business School

Deadline: 06. September 2020

"The Research Associate will support a new pan-European, multi-institution consortium (NEGEM) focused on assessing carbon dioxide gas removal (CDR) options such as bioenergy with CCS (BECCS), direct air capture of CO2 with CO2 storage (DACCS), enhanced weathering, afforestation, soil carbon sequestration and other negative emissions technologies and practices (NETPs)."

Haque, Fatima; et al. (2020): Optimizing Inorganic Carbon Sequestration and Crop Yield With Wollastonite Soil Amendment in a Microplot Study

Haque, Fatima; Santos, Rafael M.; Chiang, Yi Wai (2020): Optimizing Inorganic Carbon Sequestration and Crop Yield With Wollastonite Soil Amendment in a Microplot Study. In Front. Plant Sci. 11. DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2020.01012.

"This study focuses on sequestering CO2 in the agricultural soils as inorganic carbon, which can be accomplished by adding alkaline-earth silicates. Wollastonite is used in this study as a soil amendment, to sequester CO2 via the geochemical route of mineral carbonation."
