Bloomberg: The 'Forbidden Research' That Tantalizes Some Scientists

"Continuing the “messing with nature” theme, a panel of scientists explained how they could inject aerosol particles into the upper atmosphere in an attempt to cool the globe by causing the atmosphere to reflect more sunlight. The moderator, Stuart Brand of Whole Earth Catalog fame, labelled it “hacking the entire planet.” The panelists, Harvard physicist David Keith and Harvard economist Gernot Wagner, said what they saw as the biggest objection is what they call “moral hazard” -- the fear that people would see this form of so-called geoengineering as a safety net and consider it a license to continue to emit greenhouse gases."

Tilmes, S.; et al. (2016): Climate impacts of geoengineering in a delayed mitigation scenario

Tilmes, S.; Sanderson, B. M.; O’Neill, B. (2016): Climate impacts of geoengineering in a delayed mitigation scenario. In Geophysical Research Letters, n/a‐n/a. DOI 10.1002/2016GL070122.

"Decarbonization in the immediate future is required to limit global mean temperature (GMT) increase to 2 degrees C relative to pre-industrial conditions, if geoengineering is not considered. Here we use the Community Earth System Model (CESM) to investigate climate outcomes if no mitigation is undertaken until GMT has reached 2 degree C."
