Burns, William C. G.; Flegal, Jane A. (2015): Climate Geoengineering and the Role of Public Deliberation: A Comment on the US National Academy of Sciences’ Recommendations on Public Participation

Burns, William C. G.; Flegal, Jane A. (2015): Climate Geoengineering and the Role of Public Deliberation: A Comment on the US National Academy of Sciences’ Recommendations on Public Participation. In Climate Law 5 (2-4), pp. 252–294. DOI: 10.1163/18786561-00504006 

"In early 2015, the US National Academy of Sciences released two major reports on the topic. While it is notable that both reports recommended some form of public participation to inform research, this article argues that the vagueness of these recommendations could mean that their implementation might not comport with optimal approaches for public deliberation. We outline some options for public deliberation on climate geoengineering and important design considerations."

"We analyse the dimensions of public participation and norm-formation mechanisms of current SRM-related legal regimes and governance proposals. We find that there is a need for the social sciences, including legal and governance scholars, to engage with the theoretical and pragmatic challenges of engaging diverse and vulnerable publics fairly and efficiently."
