Sweet, Shannan K.; et al. (2021): Perceptions of naturalness predict US public support for Soil Carbon Storage as a climate solution

Sweet, Shannan K.; Schuldt, Jonathon P.; Lehmann, Johannes; Bossio, Deborah A.; Woolf, Dominic (2021): Perceptions of naturalness predict US public support for Soil Carbon Storage as a climate solution. In Climatic Change 166 (1-2), pp. 1–15. DOI: 10.1007/s10584-021-03121-0.

"We analyzed data from a national probability survey of 1222 US adults who reported believing in climate change at least “somewhat” to estimate public support for Soil Carbon Storage and how it compares to other leading Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) strategies."

Grisé, Michelle; et al. (2021): Climate Control: International Legal Mechanisms for Managing the Geopolitical Risks of Geoengineering

Grisé, Michelle; Yonekura, Emmi; Blake, Jonathan S.; Desmet, David; Garg, Anusree; Preston, Benjamin Lee (2021): Climate Control: International Legal Mechanisms for Managing the Geopolitical Risks of Geoengineering. RAND Corporation.

"In this Perspective, the authors review the state of different geoengineering technologies, highlighting differences in technological development stage, price, time scales, and potential secondary effects. They discuss the geopolitical risks that may be introduced by geoengineering implementation. Given the many serious risks that geoengineering poses, they conclude by examining whether existing international governance mechanisms manage the geopolitical risks associated with geoengineering."
