Oschlies, Andreas; Klepper, Gernot (2017): Research for assessment, not deployment of Climate Engineering. The German Research Foundation's Priority Program SPP 1689

Oschlies, Andreas; Klepper, Gernot (2017): Research for assessment, not deployment of Climate Engineering. The German Research Foundation's Priority Program SPP 1689. In: Earth's Future. DOI: 10.1002/2016EF000446.

The old ones are mired in bureaucracy, conservative religious ideology, and the past—unable to contend with issues like nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality. Borrowing from The Wizard of Oz, “We’re not in Kansas anymore.”"

Here are three key lessons we took away from global policy action on carbon removal this year."
