C2G2: As US Congress debates geoengineering, mitigation is priority

"The US House’s Subcommittees on Environment and Energy will hold a hearing on geoengineering, and specifically look into research on a branch of technologies known as solar geoengineering, or solar radiation management. It is not yet clear what will come of the Washington hearings, nor is it clear to what extent they will acknowledge the human causes of climate change.  I am concerned, however, that some may latch on to the idea of solar geoengineering as an alternative to greenhouse gases reduction. That would be wrong, and dangerous."

FCEA Blog: Dirty Hands and Geoengineering

"I want to suggest that this middle ground is captured by the philosophical idea, popularized by Michael Walzer, of ‘dirty hands.’ Dirty hands occur when a person must do something that violates the principles of normal morality—dirty one’s hands—in order to generate some significant good. Typical, though not unproblematic, examples would be that of a person who must torture a terrorist in order to defuse a nuclear bomb or Churchill ordering the carpet bombing of German cities during the Blitz."

Qantara.de: Can religion help in the fight against climate change?

"Such action presents a range of risks, including potentially shifting rainfall patterns in parts of the world, scientists say. But the idea of humans deliberately playing with the earth's climate – which some believe is the prerogative of gods – could leave religious groups sceptical. Geo-engineering proposals are expected to stir the same emotional responses as other controversial scientific advances, from genetic modification to cloning, said Scharf, who now works for a body looking at governance of climate engineering."
