Foundation for Climate Restoration: Announcement of Partnership with Earth Day Network

"The Foundation for Climate Restoration(F4CR) today announced that it is partnering with Earth Day Network in its mission to evaluate, develop and support existing methods to restore the climate. “Transformational climate action at the scale the world requires to avoid the most devastating impacts of climate change will require three things – mitigation, adaptation, and restoration,” said F4CR CEO Rick Parnell. “We cannot keep procrastinating. It’s time for ambitious, creative, and innovative solutions that seize the opportunity of climate action to deliver enormous opportunities for our shared future.”"

Project: Project Vesta

"Project Vesta is a project to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and oceans by accelerating the weathering of a type of rock called olivine. When olivine interacts with water and the CO2 dissolved in it, a chemical reaction (called weathering) occurs that creates a bicarbonate solution that marine animals like corals use in their shells. The CO2 remains locked in that form and eventually settles as sediment or turns to limestone rock on the sea floor."

Project: Developing a Research Agenda and Research Governance Approaches for Climate Intervention Strategies that Reflect Sunlight to Cool Earth

"The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine proposes to undertake a study that would develop a research agenda and recommend research governance approaches for climate intervention strategies that reflect sunlight to cool Earth. The proposed study would aim to address research needs and relevant research governance in tandem, such that the understanding and thinking on each can inform the other."

PhD Project: The chemistry of industrial materials for removing CO2 from the atmosphere

"Alkaline industrial materials (e.g., cement, lime, iron and steel waste) are amongst the largest mass flows that humanity creates. Their creation and use are essential to society, but the manufacturing process of many of these materials emits a significant amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere. [...] The student will join Heriot-Watt’s Research Centre for Carbon Solutions, an internationally leading centre for researching proposals to prevent climate change. The centre includes state of the art laboratories, servicing a dynamic community of students and researchers."

Decimals Fund: Solar Radiation Management Governance Initiative (SRMGI)

"Launched in April 2018, the DECIMALS Fund (Developing Country Impacts Modelling Analysis for SRM) is the world’s first international SRM modelling fund and the first exclusively for scientists from the Global South. From 2018 to 2020, the DECIMALS Fund will distribute more than $430,000 of grants to support Southern scientists as they research how solar radiation management geoengineering (SRM) could affect some of the world’s poorest countries and most climate-vulnerable regions."

Project: Stratospheric Controlled Perturbation Experiment (SCoPEx) Advisory Committee

"The SCoPEx research team has sought external advice from a range of stakeholders for governing SCoPEx. We [...] have decided to establish an independent Advisory Committee to provide advice on the research and governance of SCoPEx.This Advisory Committee will be established under the auspices of the Harvard Dean of Engineering, Frank Doyle, and the Harvard Vice-Provost for Research, Richard McCullough, who will work as mediators between the Advisory Committee and the SCoPEx research team. The Advisory Committee will provide advice to the Harvard Dean of Engineering, the Harvard Vice-Provost for Research, and the SCoPEx Principal Investigator, Frank Keutsch."
