Climate Intervention Tracking: A watch list

Following on from the Does climate change deserve more attention within EA post from earlier in the year, I have compiled a 'watch-list' of climate interventions and focus areas that I would really like to:

  2. Get feedback on areas I may have missed
  3. Get resources for tracking some of the gaps

Please check it out!

Quote from the linked article: "Early results suggest ECS values from some of the new CMIP6 climate models are higher than previous estimates, with early numbers being reported between 2.8C (pdf) and 5.8C. This compares with the previous coupled model intercomparison project (CMIP5), which reported values between 2.1C to 4.7C. The IPCC’s fifth assessment report (AR5) assessed ECS to be “likely” in the range 1.5C to 4.5C and “very unlikely” greater th
