20 days until Proposal creation ends
For worst-case scenarios we might need a "last chance option" in which we mimic the natural effect of aerosols at a longer time scale.
CO2 scrubbing will require power, the generation of which will contribute to global emissions. Can this problem be solved ?
Ocean Macroalgal Afforestation is a sustainable ecosystem, not geoengineering. Even so, it may be the fastest way to reverse CO2.
Earth's poles are heating up faster than elsewhere with Arctic ice declining. A shaped cloud of dust in LEO polar orbit could reverse this.
Pull up sunken nutrients to create CO2-capturing plankton blooms, then push new organic carbon into ocean depths before it reverts to CO2.
This proposal is focused to help provide the essentials to families destined to walk that fine line between adaptation and migration.
Coral reef and fish stock development!
The World Health Organization estimates that 4.6 million people die each year from causes directly attributable to air pollution.
What could have been accomplished if our planet could have harnessed the wasted energy of volcanoes?
Interested in air CO2 removal, carbon-negative fuel, saving the ocean, and redrawing the global energy map? Read further.
Geo-Safe(CDR) is a self-funded and effective Carbon Dioxide and Methane Removal Process where all benefits go directly back to the people!
Pipe Carbon Dioxide to Antarctica where it can be frozen and sequestered.
If micro-organisms can be engineered to consume N2O at just slightly higher O2 levels, there would be a drastic reduction in N2O emissions.
Block sunlight from thawing arctic ice and permafrost.
Wetlands can be drained to prevent methanogenesis. The downside is oxidation of carbon reservoirs in these wetlands.
Adding detergents to lake & rivers can trap methane bubbles in foams. These foams can then be processed to flare or recover the methane.
Bubbles from underwater seeps can be captured using sheeting/ducts. Relief wells can be drilled, preventing this methane reaching the water.
Use electrical sparks to ignite small point sources.
Use unfuelled Diesel engines to heat air by compression. Any methane in the air will be burned off, if compression is high enough.
Cloud seeding can induce fresh snowfalls, altering the albedo of underlying snow, rock or vegetation. This can retain permafrost & sea ice.
Geothermal mapping can and should be dramatically improved with bottom hole temperature data already available from oil and gas companies.
Highly accurate location of the sources and dispersion of greenhouse gases via archival hyperspectral imaging should be guiding remediation.
Radicals constitute the principle sink for atmospheric CH4. By manipulating NOx, it's possible to reduce CH4 lifetimes - at cost of O3 loss.
Clathrate deposits may break down & release methane to the atmosphere as AGW occurs. Mining these deposits will avoid uncontrolled release.
Pumping oxygen-rich surface waters down into anoxic deep waters will discourage methanogenesis and enhance methanotrophy.
Agricultural polytunnels can be placed on soils which seep methane. The polytunnels will concentrate methane, allowing recovery & treatment.
Deep water supersaturated with methane can be degassed by lifting it to the surface. This process can be self-sustaining once initiated.
generate and control hurricanes to produce clouds to reflect the sun's rays back into space and provide water for drinking and agriculture.
