Higgins, P.A.T. (2014): Climate Change Risk Management

Higgins, P.A.T. (2014): Climate Change Risk Management. American Meteorological Society (AMS). Washington, D.C. (AMS Policy Program Study.

"Climate change risk management approaches generally fall into four broad categories: 1) mitigation—efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; 2) adaptation—increasing society’s capacity to cope with changes in climate; 3) geoengineering or climate engineering—additional, deliberate manipulation of the earth system that is intended to counteract at least some of the impacts of greenhouse gas emissions; and 4) knowledge-base expansion—efforts to learn and understand more about the climate system, which can help support proactive risk management."

Triple Pundit: Can Geoengineering Really Fix Climate Change?

"One concept that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has proposed is called geoengineering: a fascinating collection of brainstorms that would mostly be relegated to the extreme of impressively ambitious goals."

Job: Postdoctoral Opportunity: Global Energy Systems, Decision-making, and Climate

"We are seeking an outstanding postdoctoral researchers who can lead scientific or technical research projects that can contribute substantively to facilitating a transition to a global near-zero emission energy economy. We also seek to improve understanding of other strategies that could potentially be applied to reduce climate damage (e.g., adaptation, solar geoengineering)."

Doda, Baran (2014): Why is geoengineering so tempting?

Doda, Baran (2014): Why is geoengineering so tempting? Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (Working Paper, 192).

"This paper studies the potential benefits from geoengineering in a standard one-sector growth model augmented with a carbon cycle and a climate system. These benefits can be interpreted as a lower bound for the direct and indirect costs which would make geoengineering less preferable to abatement."

Reynolds, J. (2014): A critical examination of the climate engineering moral hazard and risk compensation concern

Reynolds, J. (2014): A critical examination of the climate engineering moral hazard and risk compensation concern. In The Anthropocene Review. DOI 10.1177/2053019614554304.

"If the goal of climate policy is to minimize climate risks, this concern should not be grounds for restricting or prohibiting climate engineering research. Three potential means for this concern to manifest in genuinely deleterious ways, as well as policy options to reduce these effects, are identified."
