Phys.org: 'Plan B': Seven ways to engineer the climate

""Plan A" remains tackling the problem at its source. But efforts to sharply reduce greenhouse gas emissions have fallen woefully short and cannot, most scientists agree, avert catastrophic climate change on their own. Here is a "Plan B" menu of geoengineering solutions that can be broken down into two categories: dimming the sun, which remains highly controversial, and capturing carbon dioxide (CO2)."

Keith, David W.; et al. (2014): Field experiments on solar geoengineering: report of a workshop exploring a representative research portfolio

Keith, David W.; Duren, Riley; MacMartin, Douglas G. (2014): Field experiments on solar geoengineering: report of a workshop exploring a representative research portfolio. In Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society 372 (2031). DOI 10.1098/rsta.2014.017.

"We summarize a portfolio of possible field experiments on solar radiation management (SRM) and related technologies. The portfolio is intended to support analysis of potential field research related to SRM including discussions about the overall merit and risk of such research as well as mechanisms for governing such research and assessments of observational needs."
