Can oceans save us Part II: The tricky science of ocean carbon capture

w/ John Barry Gallagher, Mowgli Holme & Greg Rau hosted by Wil Burns & James Lawler on climatenow.com (23 min)

„Climate Now produced a special three-part podcast series that explores a novel suite of technologies, termed Ocean CDR, that aims to speed up Earth’s natural GHG regulator by enhancing the biogeochemical processes already happening in the oceans. In this second installment of the three-part series, the moderators apply a healthy dose of skepticism to these developing ocean CDR technologies. They ask, how the impacts of ocean CDR can effectively be monitored, if it can be done at all, and who should be doing it.“

Can oceans save us? Part III: The laws of the sea

w/ Romany Webb & James Lindsay hosted by Wil Burns & James Lawler on climatenow.com (25 min)

„In this final installment of the deep dive into the potential and risks of ocean carbon dioxide removal (CDR) techniques, the moderators consider how this nascent industry should be monitored and regulated. The moderators will take a look at the existing international legal frameworks relevant to ocean CDR – how they originated, how they apply, who is responsible for enforcing them, and what oversight needs to be put in place before these technologies start to scale up.“

The Carbon Curve: Carbon removal policy wins in the Inflation Reduction Act and beyond

by Na’im Merchant, 35 min

In Episode 7 of „The Carbon Curve“, Na’im Merchant speaks to Dr. Meron Tesfaye and Dr. Danny Broberg from the Bipartisan Policy Center.

„This week, President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act, which has been called the most consequential climate bill in history. Among other things, it makes a $369 billion investment in reducing carbon emissions and lowering energy costs, putting America closer to reaching the climate goals set by the current administration. It also has provisions that affect the carbon removal sector directly – expanding much-needed incentives that will grow the CDR industry, and position the US as a leader in this rapidly growing field.“

In this episode, following topics were discussed:
