Pfrommer, Tobias (2018): A Model of Solar Radiation Management Liability

Pfrommer, Tobias (2018): A Model of Solar Radiation Management Liability. University of Heidelberg (Discussion Paper Series, 644).

"In this paper I examine the incentives structure and welfare consequences of SRM liability regimes. Characteristics specific to SRM impact on the incentives that liability regimes provide via the definition of harm and the liability standard. Consequently, a liability regime is defined as a combination of a definition of harm and a liability standard in the model."

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."

BBC News: Are ideas to cool the planet realistic?

"The deliberate large-scale manipulation of the Earth's environment, called geoengineering, could be one way to cool the Earth or help reduce levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere."
