Legal Planet: Governing Geoengineering at the United Nations? No, at Least Not Now

"The proposed geoengineering methods vary but for the most part would either remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or make the planet a bit more reflective. Some geoengineering methods have the potential to greatly reduce climate change but also pose physical risks and social challenges. Dedicated governance will eventually be warranted, and given the global stakes, some governance should be international."

Harvard University Blog: FAQ on idealized solar geoengineering moderates key climate hazards

"This post provides some color commentary as an FAQ about “Halving warming with idealized solar geoengineering moderates key climate hazards”, published 11 March 2019 in Nature Climate Change. [...]This feels like the most important solar geoengineering (SG) study I have been lucky to be a part of. From my perspective, it’s more important and should get more attention than progress on our stratospheric experiment."

CarbonBrief: Halving global warming with solar geoengineering could ‘offset tropical storm risk’

"Engineering the climate to reflect away sunlight could halve global warming and offset the risk of increases in tropical storms, new research suggests."

The Economist: Countries look at ways to tinker with Earth’s thermostat

"The idea of cooling the climate with stratospheric sunshades that would shield the planet from the sun’s warming rays moved up the international agenda this week, with mixed results. On the one hand, new research suggested that it is theoretically possible to fine-tune such a shield without some of its potentially damaging consequences."

Khaleej Times: Climate change fight needs bold new ideas

"Climate change poses an unprecedented threat to humanity, one that appears increasingly likely to reduce global standards of living dramatically within our lifetime, and cause untold damage in the longer term. And, because addressing such a daunting planetary challenge requires radical approaches, there have been wide-ranging discussions about what the world must urgently do to limit the rise in global temperature to less than 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels."

IQS Directory: Everything You Need To Know About Geoengineering

"Now though, a majority are starting to accept that something in our environment is happening. Supporting this sentiment is the fact that a large number of scientists the world over agree that our world is rapidly changing – and not for the better. As more individuals subscribe to the scientific data points of a climate in peril, the debate is now turning to what we should do about it. In certain instances, those disagreements are far more intense than those concerning if there is a problem at all. One such climate remedy that continues to gain traction is equal parts radical and fantastical, brilliant and bonkers. That remedy is geoengineering."

Geoengineerin Monitor: Why is Geoengineering being discussed at UNEA, and how should civil society respond?

"It has been almost a decade after the landmark moratorium on all climate-related geoengineering was passed by the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in 2010 and several years since the decision of parties to the London Protocol of the London Convention on marine dumping prohibiting ocean fertilization and potentially other marine geoengineering proposals. Today, geoengineering is on the agenda of another UN body: the UN Environment Assembly."
