Reynolds, Jesse (2015): An Economic Analysis of Liability and Compensation for Harm from Large-Scale Field Research in Solar Climate Engineering

Reynolds, Jesse (2015): An Economic Analysis of Liability and Compensation for Harm from Large-Scale Field Research in Solar Climate Engineering. In Climate Law 5 (2-4), pp. 182–209. DOI: 10.1163/18786561-00504004 

"This article offers an economic analysis of the possible interrelated roles of rules, liability, and compensation in the future international regulation of large-scale field research in solar climate engineering. Notably, the benefits, risks, and incentives of climate-engineering research are unlike typical high-risk activities."

Horton, Joshua B.; et al. (2015): Liability for Solar Geoengineering. Historical Precedents, Contemporary Innovations, and Governance Possibilities

Horton, Joshua B.; Parker, Andrew; Keith, David W. (2015): Liability for Solar Geoengineering. Historical Precedents, Contemporary Innovations, and Governance Possibilities. In NYU Environmental Law Journal (22), pp. 225–273.

"The absence of liability regimes is sometimes assumed to be a showstopper for solar geoengineering. We examine a set of international liability regimes mostly associated with environmental risks, and suggest that there is a broad legal and historical precedent that might serve as a basis to develop a regime for solar geoengineering."
