Puno, Railla Veronica D. (2020): A Rights-Based Approach to Governance of Climate Geoengineering

Puno, Railla Veronica D. (2020): A Rights-Based Approach to Governance of Climate Geoengineering. In ELR 10744.

"This Article explores a rights-based approach for the governance of geoengineering in international law, including the impetus, rationale, and options for implementation. The approach would take into account the need for participation, accountability, nondiscrimination, and equality in its development and deployment, while addressing the potential of such technologies in mitigating the impacts that climate change would have to the full enjoyment of human rights, including the right to a healthy environment."

Visioni, Daniele; et al. (2020): Reduced Poleward Transport Due to Stratospheric Heating Under Stratospheric Aerosols Geoengineering

Visioni, Daniele; MacMartin, Douglas G.; Kravitz, Ben; Lee, Walker; Simpson, Isla R.; Richter, Jadwiga H. (2020): Reduced Poleward Transport Due to Stratospheric Heating Under Stratospheric Aerosols Geoengineering. In Geophysical Research Letters 47 (17). DOI: 10.1029/2020GL089470.

"We show how the heating results in a feedback where increasing injection rates lead to stronger high‐latitudinal transport barriers. This implies a potential limitation in the high‐latitude aerosol burden and subsequent cooling."

Kravitz, Ben; et al. (2020): Comparing different generations of idealized solar geoengineering simulations in the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP)

Kravitz, Ben; MacMartin, Douglas G.; Visioni, Daniele; Boucher, Olivier; Cole, Jason N. S.; Haywood, Jim et al. (2020): Comparing different generations of idealized solar geoengineering simulations in the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP). In Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (under review). DOI: 10.5194/acp-2020-732.

"Two generations of models in the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP) have now simulated offsetting a quadrupling of the CO2 concentration with solar reduction. This simulation is artificial and designed to elicit large responses in the models. Here we show that energetics, temperature, and hydrological cycle changes in this experiment are statistically indistinguishable between the two ensembles."

Keen, Steve (2020): The appallingly bad neoclassical economics of climate change

Keen, Steve (2020): The appallingly bad neoclassical economics of climate change. In Globalizations, pp. 1–29. DOI: 10.1080/14747731.2020.1807856.

"Forecasts by economists of the economic damage from climate change have been notably sanguine, compared to warnings by scientists about damage to the biosphere."

Dooley, Kate; et al. (2020): Carbon‐dioxide Removal and Biodiversity: A Threat Identification Framework

Dooley, Kate; Harrould‐Kolieb, Ellycia; Talberg, Anita (2020): Carbon‐dioxide Removal and Biodiversity: A Threat Identification Framework. In Global Policy. DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12828.

"We present a framework for assessing the impacts (positive or negative) on biodiversity and ecosystems from a spectrum of CDR interventions, so as to prioritize research to those CDR options that present minimal threats to biodiversity. Application of the framework indicates that while many CDR interventions present threats to biodiversity, certain options, such as regenerative CDR, may have positive impacts."
