C2G2: Dear Mr Zakaria: for solar geoengineering, governance matters

"On the 22nd of November, Fareed Zakaria posted a timely interview with Harvard Professor David Keith on the potential of stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI) to help tackle climate change.  While much of what one hears during the programme is true, it requires a response, mainly because of what is not addressed."

E&E News: Could a rogue nation alter clouds to combat warming?

"Gardiner fears what he calls a huge intergenerational problem. There is an older generation that might be lulled into thinking it should wait for a perfect climate solution. Gardiner believes it resembles the British in their hopes for appeasement in the years before Nazi Germany ignited World War II."

Nassiry, Darius; et al. (2017): Implications of geoengineering for developing countries

"This working paper finds that so far engagement by developing countries in discussion about geoengineering has been limited. More support is needed to enable developing countries to assess the costs and benefits of geoengineering, including the potential for unintended consequences. Longer term, any geoengineering research and governance arrangements that are agreed and put into practice may have important implications for climate governance and broader interventions to manage risks associated with other planetary boundaries."

Greenreport.it: Geoengineering is not the B plan to save the world, but needs to be explored (Italian)

Italian newspaper on CE. "Climatic engineering, also called geoengineering, is a large scale deliberate intervention in the climate system with measures including the elimination of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, the management of solar irradiation and the "fertilization" of the oceans, all hypothesis which was strongly contested by environmental associations and many climatic scientists, but from a meeting on the subject that brought together experts at the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (Cop23 Unfccc) in Bonn "Climate engineering, or climate action, is risky but needs to be explored as a complement - not as a Plan B - for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.""
