Sillmann, Jana; Lenton, Timothy M.; Levermann, Anders; Ott, Konrad; Hulme, Mike; Benduhn, François; Horton, Joshua B. (2015): Climate emergencies do not justify engineering the climate. In Nature Climate change 5 (4), pp. 290–292. DOI 10.1038/nclimate2539.

"Current climate engineering proposals do not come close to addressing the complex and contested nature of conceivable 'climate emergencies' resulting from unabated greenhouse-gas emissions."
