Singer, Clifford; et al. (2014): How China’s Options Will Determine Global Warming

Singer, Clifford; Milligan, Timothy; Rethinaraj, T. S. (2014): How China’s Options Will Determine Global Warming. In Challenges 5 (1), pp. 1–25. DOI 10.3390/challe5010001.

Comparing China's climate policy options. "While China could hold back on implementing geoengineering given a remarkable amount of international cooperation on limiting fossil carbon burning, an outcome where geoengineering is used to delay the perceived need to limit the atmospheric CO2 concentration may be difficult to avoid."

Tilmes, S.; et al. (2014): Can regional climate engineering save the summer Arctic Sea-Ice?

Tilmes, S.; Jahn, Alexandra; Kay, Jennifer E.; Holland, Marika; Lamarque, Jean-Francois (2014): Can regional climate engineering save the summer Arctic Sea-Ice? (accepted). In Geophys. Res. Lett., pp. n/a. DOI 10.1002/2013GL058731.

"Regional Arctic climate engineering has been suggested as an emergency strategy to save the sea-ice. Model simulations of idealized regional dimming experiments compared to a business-as-usual greenhouse gas emission simulation demonstrate the importance of both local and remote feedback mechanisms to the surface energy budget in high latitudes."
