Ghidoni, Riccardo; et al. (2021): Governing Climate Geoengineering: Side-payments are not enough

Ghidoni, Riccardo; Bosetti, Valentina; Tavoni, Massimo; Abatayo, Anna (2021): Governing Climate Geoengineering: Side-payments are not enough. Available online at https://ssrn.com/abstract=3790706.

"Through a laboratory experiment on a public good-or-bad game, we study whether side-payments can address this governance problem. While theoretically effective, our experimental results show only a modest impact of side-payments on outcomes, especially in a multilateral setup. Replacing unstructured bilateral exchanges with a treaty framework simplifies the action space and performs moderately better."

Carbon Capture Coalition (2021): Federal Policy Blueprint

Carbon Capture Coalition (2021): Federal Policy Blueprint. Washington, D.C.

"The blueprint represents a consensus of the Coalition’s more than 80 energy, industrial and technology companies, labor unions, and conservation, environmental, and clean energy organizations. It highlights an extensive suite of near-term recommendations for policymakers to adopt to maximize the impact of the 45Q tax credit, facilitate the buildout of CO2 transport and storage capacity, and increase federal investment in carbon management technologies, among others."

Mackler, Sasha; et al. (2021): The Commercial Case for Direct Air Capture. A White Paper by the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Direct Air Capture Advisory Council

Mackler, Sasha; Broberg, Danny; Dean, Kimberly; Steves, Lindsay; Waters, Emma (2021): The Commercial Case for Direct Air Capture. A White Paper by the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Direct Air Capture Advisory Council. Bipartisan Policy Center.

"This white paper outlines the commercial case for direct air capture (DAC) of carbon dioxide, which will play a critical role in reducing climate change risks this century and mitigating emissions from difficult to decarbonize sectors while also creating new market opportunities."

Malik, Abdul; et al. (2020): Tropical Pacific climate variability under solar geoengineering: impacts on ENSO extremes

Malik, Abdul; Nowack, Peer J.; Haigh, Joanna D.; Cao, Long; Atique, Luqman; Plancherel, Yves (2020): Tropical Pacific climate variability under solar geoengineering: impacts on ENSO extremes. In Atmos. Chem. Phys 20 (23), pp. 15461–15485. DOI: 10.5194/acp-20-15461-2020.

"We here present results from a 1000-year-long solar-geoengineering simulation, G1, carried out with the coupled atmosphere–ocean general circulation model HadCM3L. In agreement with previous studies, reducing the solar irradiance (4 %) to offset global mean surface warming in the model more than compensates the warming in the tropical Pacific that develops in the 4 × CO2 scenario."
