Parson, Edward A.; Ernst, Lia N. (2013): International Governance of Climate Engineering

Parson, Edward A.; Ernst, Lia N. (2013): International Governance of Climate Engineering. In: Theoretical Inquiries in Law 14 (1). DOI 10.1515/til-2013-015

"We advance preliminary suggestions to address two priority areas for early investigation: how international cooperation on early CE research can help develop shared norms that can grow robust enough to support future decision needs; and how early research and development on CE can be made to complement and encourage, rather than undermine, parallel efforts to reduce climate risks by cutting emissions."
