  • National Academies reports on verification of greenhouse gas emissions and the U.S. response to climate change have been completed with significant CMI input
  • An American Physical Society report on direct capture of CO2 from the air using chemicals, co-chaired by Rob Socolow and Mike Desmond (BP), is nearing completion.
  • A new online tool is now available for visualizing the distribution of the world's emissions and the division of future responsibilities under an "individual emissions cap"
  • A comparative study of scientific assessments of ozone depletion, acid rain, and climate change is shedding light on the phenomenon of "negative learning"
  • Coupling of land-ice and ocean models is offering new insights into the potential for future sea-level rise
