Oxford Geoengineering

"The Oxford Geoengineering Programme will use primary research to examine the engineering processes and associated risks of schemes to geoengineer the Earth’s climate in the context of these key scientific, ethical and governance questions. The Programme aims to establish Oxford as the pre-eminent centre in the United Kingdom and internationally for the integrated study of geoengineering."

Bickel, Eric; Lane, Lee (2009): An Analysis of Climate Engineering as a Response to Climate Change

Bickel, Eric; Lane, Lee (2009): An Analysis of Climate Engineering as a Response to Climate Change. Copenhagen Consensus Center. Frederiksberg (Analysis Paper).

"This paper offers a preliminary and exploratory assessment of the potential benefits and costs of climate engineering (CE). We examine two families of CE technologies, solar radiation management (SRM) and air capture (AC), under three emissions control environments: no controls, optimal abatement, and limiting temperature change to 2°C."
