„This study is focused on the effects of cosmic rays (solar activity) and halogen-containing molecules (mainly chlorofluorocarbons — CFCs) on atmospheric ozone depletion and global climate change. Brief reviews are first given on the cosmic-ray-driven electron-induced-reaction (CRE) theory for O3 depletion and the warming theory of halogenated molecules for climate change.“
„Lawrence Livermore scientists have discovered and demonstrated a new technique to remove and store atmospheric carbon dioxide while generating carbon-negative hydrogen and producing alkalinity, which can be used to offset ocean acidification.“

„The incentives for using SRM appear to be stronger than those for GHG control. Much analysis has used this valid point to conjecture that SRM would be easy to deploy—indeed, that it would be too easy.“
Opinion article by Clive Hamilton. „But is it wise to try to play God with the climate? For all its allure, a geoengineered Plan B may lead us into an impossible morass.“
A new Priority Program on the assessment of climate engineering is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG): „Climate Engineering: Risks, Challenges, Opportunities?“ (SPP 1689) – coordinated by Andreas Oschlies, GEOMAR, Kiel. Its first 3-year phase (2012-2015) is funded with about 5 Mio Euro. The kick-off meeting will take place in Berlin 3rd of June 2013.
„The billions of dollars required by geoengineers to scrub the atmosphere of carbon will bankrupt us. I have a cheaper solution.“ (by Russ George)
