Geoengineering
Geoengineering, geological engineering, engineering geology, or geotechnical engineering deals with the discovery, development, and production and use of subsurface earth resources, as well as the des...
Scientists Accidentally Discover Efficient Process to Turn CO2 Into Ethanol
The process is cheap, efficient, and scalable, meaning it could soon be used to remove large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere.
Part microbe, part machine: Bionic leaf sucks up carbon dioxide as it makes liquid fuel
A team of scientists at Harvard University says it has come up with a bionic leaf — a system that could use solar power and hydrogen-eating bacteria to generate liquid fuel. The findings, described in...
The Rothschilds and the Geoengineering Empire
Why would the Rothschilds be so interested in owning the largest and most recognized weather modeling organization out there?
Deep-Sea Bacteria Could Help Neutralize Greenhouse Gas, Researchers Find
Carbon dioxide, a major contributor to the buildup of atmospheric greenhouse gases, can be captured and neutralized in a process known as sequestration. Most atmospheric carbon dioxide is produced fro...
A Canadian Start-Up Is Removing CO2 From The Air And Turning It Into Pellets
A pilot project to suck CO2 out of the atmosphere and turn it into pellets that can either be used as fuel or stored underground for later has been launched by a Vancouver-based start-up called Carbon...
Mini Carbon-Capturing Motors May Help Lower Carbon Dioxide Levels In The Oceans
To help address the growing problem of water pollution, a group of scientists have created tiny motors that can rapidly remove carbon dioxide from the water. Researchers have developed carbon-capturin...
Can Rain Clean The Atmosphere?
As a raindrop falls through the atmosphere, it can attract tens to hundreds of tiny aerosol particles to its surface before hitting the ground. The process by which droplets and aerosols attract is co...
This Giant Wind Wall Sucks Carbon Dioxide Out of the Air
Carbon Engineering has an ambitious plan to take carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and turn it into fuel. The company is aiming the facility at areas where reforestation isn't an option, such as de...
How Fjords Are Helping Curb Global Warming
Fjords from Alaska to Norway soak up potentially damaging carbon from the atmosphere, making the steep-sided inlets an overlooked natural ally in offsetting man-made climate change, a study showed on ...
Scientists call for international authority on climate geoengineering
Efforts to reverse man-made climate change need international oversight before research can proceed, a meeting of scientists has heard.
German company can make gasoline from water and airborne CO2
The challenge of assembling airborne carbon gases into liquid hydrocarbon fuels has remained elusive, with most actual progress coming thanks to intermediate carbon-fixers like algae. Now, though, a G...
Controlling Weather with Lasers
Need some rain? Fire up the laser and zap a cloud. Could it be that easy? ...
400 PPM: Can Artificial Trees Help Pull CO2 from the Air?
Although capture technologies show promise, pulling CO2 out of the air is unlikely to reduce greenhouse gas concentrations soon
Solar radiation management
Solar radiation management (SRM) projects (proposed and theoretical) are a type of climate engineering which seek to reflect sunlight and thus reduce global warming. Proposed examples include the cre...

Carbon dioxide removal
Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) methods refers to a number of technologies which reduce the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Among such technologies are bio-energy with carbon capture and stor...
Greenhouse gas remediation
Greenhouse gas removal projects are a type of climate engineering that seek to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, and thus they tackle the root cause of global warming. These techniques eit...
Carbon sequestration
Carbon sequestration is the process of capture and long-term storage of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). Carbon sequestration describes long-term storage of carbon dioxide or other forms of carbon to...
