the guardian: Jurassic World: Frankenstein for the 21st Century?

On CE and other technologies. "Jack Stilgoe: I was speaking yesterday at the Circling the Square conference in Nottingham and asked to say something about responsible innovation. Here’s the gist of what I said. I’ve been told to issue a SPOILER ALERT!, although I don’t think I’m giving away much of Jurassic World in harvesting its narrative."

Kravitz, B.; et al. (2015): The Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (GeoMIP6): simulation design and preliminary results

Kravitz, B.; Robock, A.; Tilmes, S.; Boucher, O.; English, J. M.; Irvine, P. J. et al. (2015): The Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6 (GeoMIP6): simulation design and preliminary results. In Geosci. Model Dev. Discuss. 8 (6), pp. 4697–4736. DOI 10.5194/gmdd-8-4697-2015.

"We present a suite of new climate model experiment designs for the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP). This set of experiments, named GeoMIP6 (to be consistent with the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6), builds on the previous GeoMIP simulations, and has been expanded to address several further important topics, including key uncertainties in extreme events, the use of geoengineering as part of a portfolio of responses to climate change, and the relatively new idea of cirrus cloud thinning to allow more longwave radiation to escape to space."

Machin, Amanda (2015): Rethinking Political Contestation over Climate Change

Machin, Amanda (2015): Rethinking Political Contestation over Climate Change. The Netherlands Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR). Den Haag (Working Paper, 10).

On CE in chapter 2. "The socio-political atmosphere around this issue has intensified and diversified; it has heated up and dispersed out, garnering the attention of economists and philosophers, businesses and engineers, politicians and citizens. The world today features climate camps, climate marches, climate ribbons, climate refugees, climate summits, climate  engineering (Keith 2013), climate deniers and climate activists."

Geoengineering Monitor: Net Zero is not Zero: Inside the G7’s dystopian decarbonization scheme

"Last week in Germany the “Group of 7″ countries (Canada, Japan, USA, Germany, United Kingdom, France, and Italy) declared that “deep cuts in global greenhouse gas emissions are required with a decarbonisation of the global economy over the course of this century.” Many interpreted this as a call to phase out fossil fuels by the end of the century. This interpretation deserves a closer look."
