Ecologist: Geoengineering - the 'declaration' that never was may cause real harm

"It was a great story, writes Andrew Lockley - scientists signing up to a 'Berlin Declaration' imposing an effective 'test ban' on outdoor geoengineering experiments. Except there was no declaration, and scientists never agreed to it.

A highly respected atmospheric scientist, he also describes himself as a "reluctant advocate" of researching solar geoengineering—that is, large-scale efforts to artificially manage the amount of sunlight entering the atmosphere, in order to cool off the globe."

Rau, Greg H. (2014): Enhancing the Ocean’s Role in CO2 Mitigation

Rau, Greg H. (2014): Enhancing the Ocean’s Role in CO2 Mitigation. In Bill Freedman (Ed.): Global Environmental Change. Dordrecht: Springer Netherlands, pp. 817–824. 10.1007/978-94-007-5784-4_54

"Ways of safely enhancing or augmenting this carbon uptake and storage therefore have the potential to contribute significantly to atmospheric CO2 stabilization efforts. Various physical, chemical, biological, and hybrid strategies of increasing ocean CO2 uptake or reducing CO2 leakage have been proposed."
