From Morning Report on Radio NZ this morn. It’s a pretty good summary of both the report from the Royal Society of London, and the local commentary that we provided:
“Royal Society calls for research in ‘geo-engineering projects’ (3’38″ mp3)
A new report from the Royal Society of London says work needs to start now on projects to pull the planet back from catastrophe if greenhouse gas emissions run out of control.”
Quotes from Tim Flannery, Phil Boyd of NIWA, Andrew Cleland of IPENZ, all pointing out that our best approach is to work out how to cut emissions from agriculture, not to focus on geoengineering. But still, it’s worth some research dollars to get a clearer view of the risks and costs.
Apparently there was TV coverage last night too. Anyone see that?
