Last, for now, in a series of media work on CE

I've not listened to the audio yet, but the transcript is how I remember the discussion going. Unlike the Indy article, I think I was able to capture some of the nuances about research and deployment.

The comments below the article (I know, I probably shouldn't read them) imply people still don't quite get that. I confess that I worry the research-deployment differentiation is at best difficult to convey and at worst an unrealistic personal construct - some sort of intellectual comfort blanket, or rose-coloured glasses, that allows me to rationalise my desire to research. 


  1. RE: NPR - Geoengineering 101

    Hi Matt,

    I thought the article was good and fairly well-balanced. Regarding your quote:

    One technique is to suck the carbon dioxide out from the atmosphere and put it somewhere else. "You might do that by planting lots of trees...," Watson tells NPR's Arun Rath. "The whole point is that you're trying to take CO2 out of the atmosphere and put it somewhere else."

    The article got it right, planting trees is geoengineering.
