innovationsreport: Experiment Would Test Cloud Geoengineering as Way to Slow Warming

Another media response to a paper published by Royal Society. "Even though it sounds like science fiction, researchers are taking a second look at a controversial idea that uses futuristic ships to shoot salt water high into the sky over the oceans, creating clouds that reflect sunlight and thus counter global warming."

Klepper, Gernot; Rickels, Wilfried (2012): The Real Economics of Climate Engineering

Klepper, Gernot; Rickels, Wilfried (2012): The Real Economics of Climate Engineering. In: Economics Research International, pp. 1–20.

New calculation with formerly unknown costs. "Whereas Barrett was mostly focusing on the cost of running CE measures, we point out that several determinants of overall economic cost like price or external effects are not yet sufficiently accounted for and that the question of dynamic efficiency is still unresolved."
