  • Mar. 2015: Ice911 Founder Leslie Field wrote a book review of Cold Cash, Cool Climate: Science-Based Advice for Ecological Entrepreneurs, by Jonathan Koomey, in the journal Energy Research & Social Science.
  • Jan. 2014: The article “Ice911: Buying time for green innovation”, by Sue Lebeck appeared in GreenBiz
  • Dec. 2013: The polar-strength instrumentation created by Ice911 is the subject of an articlefor Environmental Monitor, by Jeff Gillies.
  • Feb. 2013: Physics Today mentioned Ice911's solution in “Scientists alarmed by rapidly shrinking Arctic ice cap” by David Kramer.
  • Sept. 2012: Ice911 was one of the projects featured in the article “Soft Geoengineering” by Robert Olson, published in Environment magazine. Olson wrote: “Acceptable technologies would only lightly touch biological systems, have benign social impacts and be rapidly reversible if problems arise, among other criteria.” Ice911 does all that and more. 
  • 2010: The book Hack the Planet, by Eli Kintisch, describes Ice911 (on page 46).
