Technique of burning biomass then pumping released carbon underground included in leaked draft from UN climate panel

An upcoming UN report suggests that unproven technologies to suck carbon out of the air might be a fix for climate change, according to a leaked draft obtained by the Guardian.

Scientists and government officials gather in Berlin this week ahead of Sunday’s publication of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s third part of its series of blockbuster climate change reports, which deals with policies addressing the emissions that drive global warming.

Terri Lynn Land: 'Climate Change Is Absolutely Real'

Former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land (R), who’s running to replace retiring Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), acknowledged in two tweets Wednesday that climate change exists.

Speaking out against the Environmental Protection Agency’s new rules curbing carbon emissions from power plants, Land said she believes in “protecting [Michigan] from climate change,” but not at the cost of jobs:

Her tweets come after a spokesperson for Land told the Washington Post’s Greg Sargent in May that while “there should be a healthy and educated debate on the impact of human activity on our environment,” Land herself “does not agree with radical liberals like Tom Steyer and Congressman [Gary] Peters on the extent of the effect of human behavior on our climate.”

Steyer’s super PAC NextGen Climate, is targeting Land and seven other GOP candidates in their election bids this year.

Land’s campaign spokeswoman Heather Swift previously discussed Land’s stance with the Detroit News.

“Is climate change real? Absolutely. Could some of it be the fault of humans? It could be,” Swift said. “But every time Congressman Peters votes to kill one more source of affordable and available energy, he is telling a struggling Michigan family to go without a good-paying job.”

Land has been criticized by her Democratic opponent, Rep. Gary Peters (D-Mich.) for her stance on climate change and has tried tying her to the Koch brothers.

Peters has also used his support for the EPA’s new regulations to target Land, who has described the new rules as an “enormous regulatory attack on coal.”

HuffPost Pollster has Peters leading Land ahead of the November 2014 general election:
