Urpelainen, Johannes (2012): Geoengineering and global warming: a strategic perspective

Urpelainen, Johannes (2012): Geoengineering and global warming: a strategic perspective. In: Int Environ Agreements. (online first)

"My game-theoretic analysis demonstrates that unilateral geoengineering presents a difficult governance problem if it produces negative externalities in foreign countries. Interestingly, countries may be tempted to reduce emissions now, so as to prevent a harmful geoengineering race in the future."

Partanen, A.-I.; Kokkola, H. (2012): Direct and indirect effects of sea spray geoengineering and the role of injected particle size

Partanen, Antti-Ilari; Kokkola, Harri; Romakkaniemi, Sami; Kerminen, Veli-Matti; Lehtinen, Kari E. J.; Bergman, Tommi et al. (2012): Direct and indirect effects of sea spray geoengineering and the role of injected particle size. In: J. Geophys. Res 117 (D2).. doi:10.1029/2011JD016428 (final paper)

"The aerosol direct effect of sea spray geoengineering is not insignificant - Cloud modification was most efficient when the injected particles were small - There are large uncertainties in the efficiency of sea spray geoengineering"

Pongratz, J.; Lobell, D. B.; Cao, L.; Caldeira, K. (2012): Crop yields in a geoengineered climate

Pongratz, J.; Lobell, D. B.; Cao, L.; Caldeira, K. (2012): Crop yields in a geoengineered climate. In: Nature Climate change. doi: 10.1038/NCLIMATE1373

CE technologies of SRM might increase crop yields.

"Crop models predict that recent and future climate change may have adverse effects on crop yields. Intentional deflection of sunlight away from the Earth could diminish the amount of climate change in a high-CO2 world. [...] We find that in our models solar-radiation geoengineering in a high-CO2 climate generally causes crop yields to increase, largely because temperature stresses are diminished while the benefits of CO2 fertilization are retained."

Allenby, Brad (2012): A Critique of Geoengineering

Allenby, Brad (2012): A Critique of Geoengineering. In: IEEE Potentials 31 (1), S. 22–26. DOI 10.1109/MPOT.2011.943110

"Interest in “geoengineering” technologies has increased significantly over the past few years because of concern about global climate change coupled with a growing recognition of the inadequacies of the Kyoto Protocol and the ongoing climate change negotiating process."
