Climate Action Network (comprising around 1500 NGOs/networks worldwide) has published a new 21-page position paper on carbon capture and storage with 100 scientific references. Based on current global trends and an analysis of existing literature and reports, CAN draws the following conclusions on CCS and its potential to serve as a climate-mitigation tool:
1. CCS at scale remains largely unproven and its potential to deliver significant emission reductions by mid-century is currently limited.
2. Safe, permanent, and verifiable storage of CO₂ is difficult to guarantee.
During 2021, US initiatives are again planning to run experiments to manipulate the Earth’s atmosphere. One such experiment is scheduled to take place at an aerospace centre in Kiruna in northern Sweden in June 2021, but is strongly opposed by environmental NGOs1.
Climate Action Network (comprising 1500 NGOs/networks worldwide) has declared a clear position2 against solar radiation modifications (SRM), summarised as follows:

Place the most vulnerable at the core of the response to the climate crisis. The citizens of Small Island Development States (SIDS) are among the most vulnerable people to climate change. More than 60 million people living on these islands are threatened directly by sea-level rise and more intense weather-related natural disasters, caused by global heating.
