Machin, Amanda (2015): Rethinking Political Contestation over Climate Change

Machin, Amanda (2015): Rethinking Political Contestation over Climate Change. The Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR). Den Haag (Working Paper, 10).

On CE in chapter 2. "The socio-political atmosphere around this issue has intensified and diversified; it has heated up and dispersed out, garnering the attention of economists and philosophers, businesses and engineers, politicians and citizens. The world today features climate camps, climate marches, climate ribbons, climate refugees, climate summits, climate  engineering (Keith 2013), climate deniers and climate activists."

Actionaid (2015): Caught in the Net: How “net-zero emissions” will delay real climate action and drive land grabs

Actionaid (2015): Caught in the Net: How “net-zero emissions” will delay real climate action and drive land grabs. With assistance of Teresa Anderson, Kelly Stone.

"The “net-zero emissions” approach will put the burden for addressing climate change on the countries and communities who have done the least to cause the problem, shifting the climate burden to the South. The land rights and food sovereignty of small-holder farmers, indigenous peoples and local communities, particularly in developing countries, will be threatened by the large-scale use of land for mitigation that will conflict with food production and ecosystems."

Haraguchi, Masahiko; et al. (2015): Human Intervention in the Earth’s Climate. The Governance of Geoengineering in 2025+

Haraguchi, Masahiko; Liu, Rongkun; Randhawa, Jasdeep; Salz, Susanne; Schäfer, Stefan; Sharma, Mundit et al. (2015): Human Intervention in the Earth’s Climate. The Governance of Geoengineering in 2025+. Edited by Robert Bosch Stiftung.

"The Global Governance Futures program (GGF) brings together young professionals to look ahead 10 years and to recommend ways to address global challenges. [...] The GGF 2025 fellows – a diverse mix from the public, private and non-profit sectors, and selected from a highly competitive field of applicants – formed three working groups that
focused on Internet governance, geoengineering governance and global arms control, respectively. Using  instruments from the field of futures research, the working groups produced scenarios for their respective issue areas."

ETC Group: Geoengineering and Climate Change. Implications for Latin America, Africa, Asia

"Geoengineering could technically take climate decisions away from all but the richest countries. Computer models show that stratospheric interventions to reduce sunlight and lower temperatures may benefit some temperate zones but negatively impact Latin America with important social and agricultural consequences."
