Turkaly, Carolyn; et al. (2017): Establishing a Climate Engineering Research Clearinghouse

Turkaly, Carolyn; Nicholson, Simon; Livingston, David; Thompson, Michael (2017): Establishing a Climate Engineering Research Clearinghouse. Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; Forum for Climate Engineering Assessment. Washington, D.C.

"On July 18, 2017, the Forum for Climate Engineering Assessment and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace convened a meeting of experts in CE science and governance, transparency, and information visualization to discuss designing, implementing, and maintaining a CE clearinghouse. A research registry, database, or clearinghouse is often cited as a necessary transparency mechanism in the governance of CE research. This workshop, building on a 2015 meeting on disclosure mechanisms for solar radiation management convened in Ottawa,1 such a clearinghouse from principle to practice."

Corry, Olaf (2017): The international politics of geoengineering. The feasibility of Plan B for tackling climate change

Corry, Olaf (2017): The international politics of geoengineering. The feasibility of Plan B for tackling climate change. In Security Dialogue 48 (4), pp. 297–315. DOI: 10.1177/0967010617704142.

"This article puts forward what it calls the ‘security hazard’ and argues that this could be a crucial factor in determining whether a technology is able, ultimately, to reduce climate risks. Ideas about global governance of geoengineering rely on heroic assumptions about state rationality and a generally pacific international system. Moreover, if in a climate engineered world weather events become something certain states can be made directly responsible for, this may also negatively affect prospects for ‘Plan A’, i.e. an effective global agreement on mitigation."

FCEA Blog: The Developing World and Climate Engineering: Unevenly Affected and Underrepresented

"Asian monsoons have become a poignant parable in climate engineering discourse. Theoretically envisioning the effects of climate engineering on monsoons encapsulates the diffuse and complex implications embedded in these emerging technologies. However, the thought exercise reveals just as much about the discourse concerning the technologies as they do the technologies themselves. Specifically, they reveal the relative absence of developing countries from the discussion."

TechSwitch: Local weather Change Is Right here. It’s Time to Discuss About Geoengineering

"This raises the specter of geoengineering : issues like seeding the stratosphere with sulfur, or utilizing ice crystals to dissolve heat-trapping clouds. However geoengineering is a grimy phrase many local weather scientists and local weather coverage specialists keep away from, as a result of people meddling with nature does not have one of the best observe document. Which is why they are saying world leaders have to give you some guidelines about geoengineering ASAP, earlier than desperation over the approaching local weather disaster forces humanity to do one thing it’d properly remorse."
