Nature News: March for Science, climate engineering and Chinas space station

Geoengineering The United Kingdom unveiled an £8.6-million (US$11[nbsp]million) programme of research into geoengineering — the science of altering the planet’s systems to counter global warming — on 20[nbsp]April. The Greenhouse Gas Removal Research Programme will fund around 100 researchers working on projects that range from combining tree planting with farming in agroforestry schemes to using weathering of mining slag to absorb carbon dioxide from the air. The government-funded scheme could eventually help Britain to meet its commitment under the 2015 Paris climate agreement to try to limit global warming to 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels.“
