Towards legitimacy of the solar geoengineering research enterprise

May 13, 2018 - Mounting evidence that even aggressive reductions in net emissions of greenhouse gases will be insufficient to limit global climate risks is increasing calls for atmospheric experiments to better understand the risks and implications of also

Stop emitting CO2 or geoengineering could be our only hope

Geoengineering and its consequences are the price we may have to pay for failure to act on climate change.". ... The report assesses the two main kinds of geoengineering techniques Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) and Solar Radiation Management (SRM).

Geoengineering, climate change scepticism and the ‘moral hazard’ argument: an experimental study of UK public…

Dec 28, 2014 - Many commentators have expressed concerns that researching and/or developing geoengineering technologies may undermine support for existing climate policies—the so-called moral hazard argument. This argument plays a central role in policy debates

Developing a test-bed for robust research governance of geoengineering: the contribution of ocean iron biogeochemistry

Nov 28, 2016 - Geoengineering to mitigate climate change has long been proposed, but remains nebulous. Exploration of the feasibility of geoengineering first requires the development of research governance to move beyond the conceptual towards scientifically

Solar geoengineering to limit the rate of temperature change

Dec 28, 2014 - Solar geoengineering has been suggested as a tool that might reduce damage from anthropogenic climate change. Analysis often assumes that geoengineering would be used to maintain a constant global mean temperature. Under this scenario,

Exploring early public responses to geoengineering

Sep 13, 2012 - Proposals for geoengineering the Earth's climate are prime examples of emerging or ‘upstream’ technologies, because many aspects of their effectiveness, cost and risks are yet to be researched, and in many cases are highly uncertain. This paper

Solar geoengineering as part of an overall strategy for meeting the 1.5°C Paris target

May 13, 2018 - Solar geoengineering refers to deliberately reducing net radiative forcing by reflecting some sunlight back to space, in order to reduce anthropogenic climate changes; a possible such approach would be adding aerosols to the stratosphere. If future
