Sikka, Tina (2012): A critical theory of technology applied to the public discussion of geoengineering

Sikka, Tina (2012): A critical theory of technology applied to the public discussion of geoengineering. In: Technology in Society 34 (2), pp. 109–117. DOI 10.1016/j.techsoc.2012.02.003

"In this piece, I examine geoengineering technologies through the lens of a critical theory of technology. A critical theory of technology aims 'to account for the increasing weight of public actors in technological development'"

Sikka, Tina (2012): A critical discourse analysis of geoengineering advocacy

Sikka, Tina (2012): A critical discourse analysis of geoengineering advocacy. In: Critical Discourse Studies 9 (2), pp. 163–175. DOI 10.1080/17405904.2012.656377

"In this paper, I examine the discursive field of geoengineering by unpacking how particular members, associates and academics allied with private institutes frame, treat and discursively construct a justification of geoengineering technologies."

Bickel, J. Eric (2013): Climate engineering and climate tipping-point scenarios

Bickel, J. Eric (2013): Climate engineering and climate tipping-point scenarios. In: Environ Syst Decis. (in press) DOI 10.1007/s10669-013-9435

"In this paper, we analyze the potential value of one climate engineering technology family, known as solar radiation management (SRM) to manage the risk of differing tipping-point scenarios. We find that adding SRM to a policy of emissions controls may be able to help manage the risk of climate tipping points and that its potential benefits are large."

Ricke, Katharine L.; et al. (2013): Strategic incentives for climate geoengineering coalitions to exclude broad participation

Ricke, Katharine L.; Moreno-Cruz, Juan B.; Caldeira, Ken (2013): Strategic incentives for climate geoengineering coalitions to exclude broad participation. In: Environ. Res. Lett. 8 (1), pp. 14021.

Game-theoretical modeling of CE wins/losses. "Climate model simulations project a diversity of regional outcomes that vary with the amount of solar geoengineering deployed. It is unlikely that a single small actor could implement and sustain global-scale geoengineering that harms much of the world without intervention from harmed world powers."
