Phys.org: Uncertainties related to climate engineering limit its use in curbing climate change

Media article on Ekholm, Tommi; Korhonen, Hannele (2016). "Climate engineering refers to the systematic, large-scale modification of the environment using various climate intervention techniques. However, a new study by VTT and the Finnish Meteorological Institute suggests that the uncertainties associated with climate engineering are too great for it to provide an alternative to the rapid reduction of greenhouse gas emissions."

MacMartin, Douglas G.; et al. (2015): On solar geoengineering and climate uncertainty

MacMartin, Douglas G.; Kravitz, Ben; Rasch, Philip J. (2015): On solar geoengineering and climate uncertainty. In Geophys. Res. Lett., pp. n/a. DOI 10.1002/2015GL065391.

"We explore the effects of geoengineering on one source of climate system uncertainty by evaluating the inter-model-spread across 12 climate models participating in the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison project (GeoMIP). The model-spread in simulations of climate change and the model-spread in the response to solar geoengineering are not additive but rather partially cancel."

Rayner, Steve (2015): To know or not to know? A not on ignorance as a rethorical resource in geoengineering debates

Rayner, Steve (2015): To know or not to know? A not on ignorance as a rethorical resource in geoengineering debates. In Matthias Gross, Linsey McGoey (Eds.): Routledge international handbook of ignorance studies. 1 Edition. Balsingstoke: Routledge (Routledge international handbooks), pp. 308–317.

Handbook with an article by Rayner. "The field is growing fast and this handbook reflects this interdisciplinary field of study by drawing contributions from economics, sociology, history, philosophy, cultural studies, anthropology, feminist studies, and related fields in order to serve as a seminal guide to the political, legal and social uses of ignorance in social and political life."

EcoWatch: Geoengineering is Not the Answer to Climate Change

"Because nature doesn’t always behave the same in a lab, test tube or computer program as it does in the real world, scientists and engineers have come up with ideas that didn’t turn out as expected."
