„Britain moved one step closer to its 2024/25 target of phasing out coal power completely, while biomass generation hit new record highs.“
„Climate scientist David Archer of the University of Chicago discusses his research on the Ultimate Cost of Carbon (UCC): The climate impacts of release CO2 if the negative effects are not discounted. He also discusses the *very* long term impacts that our emissions of CO2 have on the climate (~500,000 years!).“

„The goal of this Research Topic to explore and frame the risk management aspects of solar radiation management and the related humanitarian considerations in the event that solar radiation management is deployed or not deployed. Editors of this topic hope to curate a special article collection that represents the multifaceted debate on the humanitarian considerations of solar radiation management.“

„We use the Global Change Analysis Model to simulate how negative emissions technologies, in general, and direct air capture (DAC) in particular, could contribute to China’s meeting this target.“
Sweet, Shannan K.; et al. (2021): Perceptions of naturalness predict US public support for Soil Carbon Storage as a climate solution
Sweet, Shannan K.; Schuldt, Jonathon P.; Lehmann, Johannes; Bossio, Deborah A.; Woolf, Dominic (2021): Perceptions of naturalness predict US public support for Soil Carbon Storage as a climate solution. In Climatic Change 166 (1-2), pp. 1–15. DOI: 10.1007/s10584-021-03121-0.
„We analyzed data from a national probability survey of 1222 US adults who reported believing in climate change at least “somewhat” to estimate public support for Soil Carbon Storage and how it compares to other leading Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) strategies.“

In Washington and Lee Journal of Civil Rights and Social Justice 27 (2), p. 791. Available online at https://scholarlycommons.law.wlu.edu/crsj/vol27/iss2/13.
„This Note explores the patenting of geoengineering technologies and issues arising from the early stages of this high-risk, high-reward technology. This Note focuses on one possible solution to solving the issues surrounding the patenting of geoengineering technology: Creating a specialized compulsory licensing scheme.“
Grisé, Michelle; et al. (2021): Climate Control: International Legal Mechanisms for Managing the Geopolitical Risks of Geoengineering
Grisé, Michelle; Yonekura, Emmi; Blake, Jonathan S.; Desmet, David; Garg, Anusree; Preston, Benjamin Lee (2021): Climate Control: International Legal Mechanisms for Managing the Geopolitical Risks of Geoengineering. RAND Corporation.
„In this Perspective, the authors review the state of different geoengineering technologies, highlighting differences in technological development stage, price, time scales, and potential secondary effects. They discuss the geopolitical risks that may be introduced by geoengineering implementation. Given the many serious risks that geoengineering poses, they conclude by examining whether existing international governance mechanisms manage the geopolitical risks associated with geoengineering.“
