Gardiner, Stephen M. (2013): Why geoengineering is not a ‘global public good’, and why it is ethically misleading to frame it as one

Gardiner, Stephen M. (2013): Why geoengineering is not a ‘global public good’, and why it is ethically misleading to frame it as one. In: Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-013-0764-x

"This paper argues that the paradigm example of geoengineering—stratospheric sulfate injection (hereafter ‘SSI’)—does not fit the canonical technical definition of a global public good, and that more relaxed versions are unhelpful."
