1. Cambridge University's idea for a centre for Climate Repair is great. But this BBC piece makes a number of common slip-ups in my view. In order of appearance:
BBC News - Climate change: Scientists test radical ways to fix Earth's climate bbc.com/news/science-e…
- and must be combined with rapid emissions cuts. All the scientists I know working on it make this point repeatedly.
It 'could', perhaps. Let's hope. But 'could' also lead to increases in emissions if care is not taken to avoid mitigation deterrence
6. "the new centre's mission would be to 'solve the climate problem'"? It's unhelpful to suggest geoengineering could 'solve' climate change as that makes it appear to be an alternative not a supplement, a stand-alone 'solution'.
