Cairns, Rose (2014): Climates of suspicion: 'chemtrail' conspiracy narratives and the international politics of geoengineering

Cairns, Rose (2014): Climates of suspicion: 'chemtrail' conspiracy narratives and the international politics of geoengineering (CGG Working Papers, 09).

"This paper builds on work highlighting the instability of the distinction between ‘conspiratorial’ versus ‘normal’ views, and examines conspiracy narratives as discourse rather than as pathologies (either psychological or sociological). A discourse analysis allows an exploration of parallel logics and concerns animating both the chemtrail narrative and  wider discourses around climate and climate control."

Yale Blog: On the Ethics of Climate Engineering

"In my essay, I assess Gardiner’s argument, and others like his. I argue that Gardiner’s description of climate engineering as a “tarnishing evil,” which would be a “reckless, callous, and shallow” response to one of humanity’s most fundamental challenges, is misguided."
