Corry, Olaf (2017): The international politics of geoengineering. The feasibility of Plan B for tackling climate change

Corry, Olaf (2017): The international politics of geoengineering. The feasibility of Plan B for tackling climate change. In Security Dialogue 48 (4), pp. 297–315. DOI: 10.1177/0967010617704142.

"This article puts forward what it calls the ‘security hazard’ and argues that this could be a crucial factor in determining whether a technology is able, ultimately, to reduce climate risks. Ideas about global governance of geoengineering rely on heroic assumptions about state rationality and a generally pacific international system. Moreover, if in a climate engineered world weather events become something certain states can be made directly responsible for, this may also negatively affect prospects for ‘Plan A’, i.e. an effective global agreement on mitigation."
