Integrated Assessment of Geoengineering Proposals (IAGP)

"Integrated Assessment of Geoengineering Proposals (IAGP) is a four year research project, (October 2010 to September 2014) and is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).  IAGP brings together a broad range of expertise, from climate modelling to philosophy and engineering to public perceptions to conduct an objective, policy-relevant assessment of geoengineering proposals."

It seems likely that the idea of regulating the climate, initially triggered by rising concern about the prospect of a climate emergency, will become normalised, with far-reaching implications."
