We Are Climate Action Advocates

To mitigate the worst effects of global warming we need to defeat both CO2 in the long-run as well temperature rise in the short-run as a double-edged sword handed to us by our past emissions and polution. We intend to accelerate ocean-based climate cooling solutions over the next five to ten years to develop and deploy effective cooling strategies.

We Support And Advocate Ocean-Based Climate Strategies

With time pressing, we are actively advocating and facilitating scientific modeling and analysis, contributing to the development of governance models, and providing vital support and energy to drive innovations and funding for Ocean-Based Climate Cooling Strategies (such as MCB).

MCB in the news

In our media center, you can explore the latest updates on Marine Cloud Brightening (MCB) and other ocean-based climate cooling concepts. Our focus lies in advocating for climate cooling strategies, sharing insights into our research partners’ efforts and progress, and connecting the world to the advancement of innovative transformative technologies. Are you ready to delve into something new?

Advocating Climate Action

The Ocean As Our Ally

The Blue Cooling Initiative advocated and facilitates scientific advancements in climate cooling technologies through organizing financial support, promoting interdisciplinary collaboration and engagement, and addressing governance issues.

BCI avocates and facilitates progress by facilitating funding, fostering collaboration across different fields of expertise, and ensuring effective governance frameworks are in place to support the development and deployment of innovative and effective climate cooling solutions.

While we advocate research colaboration, BCI also advocates and facilitates funding to create a global governance framework and scientific field experiments within the European Union, African and the Middle-East

Together, we strive to advocate the acceleration of sustainable ocean-based cooling strategies to benefit the whole global community.

The Blue Cooling Initiative advocates to advance climate cooling strategies and innovative approaches centered around nature-based and ocean-based climate cooling solutions.

BCI underscores the importance of preserving marine and coastal ecosystems, and restauration to restore biodiverity on land and in our oceans.

By integrating effective governance frameworks, such as those advocated by the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative, into Climate Cooling strategies, BCI advocates and facilitates responsible growth and international cooperation.

BCI advocates that Climate Cooling strategies evolves in a manner that benefits society equally and equitably.

The Blue Cooling Media Centre

In our online media center, you will find a collection of the latest information on MCB and other ocean-based blue cooling strategies. Discover upcoming global BCI and Climate Cooling events, enhance your knowledge, or become an active supporter by subscribing to our newsletter. It’s the brighter choice for a sustainable future.

CO2 Effect Underestimated, Climate Crisis More Severe Than Thought

According to researchers from Columbia University, led by James Hansen, the warming effect of CO₂ is 50 percent stronger than previously believed. Hansen also points to “an imbalance between the energy coming in from the sun and the outgoing energy from the earth,” which has significantly increased and nearly doubled in the past decade.

Global warming is accelerating to a Hot Earth scenario

Hansen said that while cutting emissions should be the highest priority, “thanks to the slowness in developing adequate carbon-free energies and failure to put a price on carbon emissions, it is now unlikely that we can get there – a bright future for young people – from here without temporary help from solar radiation management”.
