Reynolds, Jesse (2016): Solar Climate Engineering, Law, and Regulation

Reynolds, Jesse (2016): Solar Climate Engineering, Law, and Regulation. In Roger Brownsword, Eloise Scotford, Karen Yeung (Eds.): The Oxford handbook of the law and regulation of technology. Oxford: Oxford University Press.

"This chapter offers an introduction to solar climate engineering, and explores its potential, risks, and legal and regulatory challenges. It also contextualizes these proposals with respect to other emerging technologies and the broader socio-political milieu. The chapter discusses the contours of existing and potential regulation, particularly at the international level. These aspects include regulatory rationales, diverse characteristics of proposed regulatory regimes, difficulties in defining the regulatory target, and the management of uncertainty through precaution."
