C2G Policy Brief (2021): Climate-Altering Approaches and the Arctic

C2G Policy Brief (2021): Climate-Altering Approaches  and the Arctic. 17th March 2021 - 2nd Edition.

"The Arctic plays a key role in the global climate system. Current commitments made under the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change are insufficient to keep global warming to ‘well below’ 2°C, and according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), much greater ambition is necessary."

Project: Arctic Ice Project

"The most studied ice restoration effort in the world. We’re developing a safe, localized technique to enhance the Arctic’s natural ability to reflect solar radiation out of the atmosphere, increase the Earth’s planetary albedo, and slow the rate of global warming."

Global Policy Journal: Could Climate Interventions Slow the Melting of the Cryosphere?

"The ice sheets, sea ice and permafrost provide little direct economic benefit to nation states, despite their importance for Arctic indigenous peoples. But they do provide extremely important features that enable the present climate to operate as humankind has grown used to."

Moore, John C.; et al. (2020): Targeted Geoengineering: Local Interventions with Global Implications

Moore, John C.; Mettiäinen, Ilona; Wolovick, Michael; Zhao, Liyun; Gladstone, Rupert; Chen, Ying et al. (2020): Targeted Geoengineering: Local Interventions with Global Implications. In Glob Policy. DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12867.

"Targeted geoengineering aims to tackle a global scale impact of climate warming by addressing local or regional systemic interventions. We consider three examples: conserving the West Antarctic ice sheet by limiting rates of ice discharge or increasing snow accumulation, thereby reducing global sea level rise; transforming the Arctic permafrost zone into steppe grassland; raising the albedo of Arctic sea ice."

The Guardian: 10 million snowblowers? Last-ditch ideas to save the Arctic ice

"As the realization sets in that existing emission reductions and renewable energy programs in place won’t be enough to save the Arctic, alternative geoengineering projects have gained traction as scientists look for a last-ditch solution."

Daniel Bodansky; Hugh Hunt (2020): Arctic Climate Interventions

Daniel Bodansky; Hugh Hunt (2020): Arctic Climate Interventions. In The International Journal of Marine and Coastal Law 35 (3), pp. 596–617. DOI: 10.1163/15718085-BJA10035.

"Even if one believes that global climate interventions, such as injecting aerosols into the stratosphere to scatter sunlight, pose unacceptable risks and should be disqualified from consideration, Arctic interventions differ in important respects. They are closer in kind to conventional mitigation and adaptation and should be evaluated in similar terms. It is unclear whether they are feasible and would be effective in saving the Arctic. But given the importance of the Arctic, they should be investigated fully."
