Swedish Blog post on CE. „All that remains is the ultimate „solution„ to try to take command of the climate. To „fix“ it with engineering.“ (Google translate)

„It is no longer prudent for the environmental movement to think of geoengineering as a closeted secret of quack scientists or something out of an Isaac Asimov novel. […] There is an urgency that is required of the environmental movement to talk about what failure to win on mitigation or adaptation on a large scale, in meaningful ways, could likely result in[nbsp]–[nbsp]geoengineering/climate engineering of the environment as the only option.“
„STRANGE WEATHER is a curated exhibition that will bring together meteorologists, artists, climate scientists, cloud enthusiasts and designers to explore how we model, predict, and even create weather.“

„We show that satellite observations permit detection of large increases, but interannual variability overwhelms the maximum conceivable albedo increases for some schemes.“

Aquila, V.; Garfinkel, C. I.; Newman, P. A.; Oman, L. D.; Waugh, D. W. (2014): Modifications of the quasi-biennial oscillation by a geoengineering perturbation of the stratospheric aerosol layer. (accepted article). In Geophys. Res. Lett. DOI 10.1002/2013GL058818.
„This paper examines the impact of geoengineering via stratospheric sulfate aerosol on the quasi-biennial oscillation (QBO) using the NASA Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS-5) Chemistry Climate Model.“
On enhanced weathering. „Experts push for more research into olivine weathering.“

„The social sciences have a role to play in clarifying the moral hazards associated with geoengineering, given that future generations may have no other choice but to implement such projects.“
