Low, Sean; Honegger, Matthias (2020): A Precautionary Assessment of Systemic Projections and Promises From Sunlight Reflection and Carbon Removal Modeling

Low, Sean; Honegger, Matthias (2020): A Precautionary Assessment of Systemic Projections and Promises From Sunlight Reflection and Carbon Removal Modeling. In Risk analysis : an official publication of the Society for Risk Analysis. DOI: 10.1111/risa.13565.

"We describe how evolving modeling practices are trending toward optimized and “best‐case” projections —portraying deployment schemes that create both technically slanted and politically sanitized profiles of risk, as well as ideal objectives for CDR and SRM as mitigation‐enhancing, time‐buying mechanisms for carbon transitions or vulnerable populations."
