Horton, Joshua B.; Koremenos, Barbara (2020): Steering and Influence in Transnational Climate Governance: Nonstate Engagement in Solar Geoengineering Research

Horton, Joshua B.; Koremenos, Barbara (2020): Steering and Influence in Transnational Climate Governance: Nonstate Engagement in Solar Geoengineering Research. In Global Environmental Politics 20 (3), pp. 93–111. DOI: 10.1162/glep_a_00572.

"Theorists of transnational climate governance (TCG) seek to account for the increasing involvement of nonstate and substate actors in global climate policy. While transnational actors have been present in the emerging field of solar geoengineering—a novel technology intended to reflect a fraction of sunlight back to space to reduce climate impacts—many of their most significant activities, including knowledge dissemination, scientific capacity building, and conventional lobbying, are not captured by the TCG framework."

Parson, Edward A.; Buck, Holly J. (2020): Large-Scale Carbon Dioxide Removal: The Problem of Phasedown

Parson, Edward A.; Buck, Holly J. (2020): Large-Scale Carbon Dioxide Removal: The Problem of Phasedown. In Global Environmental Politics 20 (3), pp. 70–92. DOI: 10.1162/glep_a_00575.

"The future phasedown need implies suggestive guidance for near-term decisions about removal methods and design of associated policy and business environments. First, variation among methods’ scale constraints and cost structures suggests a rough ordering of methods by severity of future phasedown challenges. Second, of the three potential means to motivate removals—profitable products incorporating removed carbon, extended emissions-pricing policies, or public procurement contracts—public procurement appears to present the fewest roadblocks to future phasedown."
