Gardiner, Stephen (2014): Why ‘global public good’ is a treacherous term, especially for geoengineering

Gardiner, Stephen (2014): Why ‘global public good’ is a treacherous term, especially for geoengineering. In Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-014-1079-2.

Expanded and refined argumentation based on Gardiner, Stephen M. (2013). "This discussion reinforces my suggestion that it is time to excise the term ‘global public good’ from the framing of SSI [stratospheric sulfur injection], and perhaps more generally."

Morrow, David R. (2014): Why geoengineering is a public good, even if it is bad

Morrow, David R. (2014): Why geoengineering is a public good, even if it is bad. In Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-013-0967-1.

"A public good is something that is nonrival and nonexcludable. Contrary to Gardiner’s claims, geoengineering meets both of these criteria."
