LegalPlanet: Don’t Believe Everything That You Read

"If you had followed the climate change news over the weekend, you might have been shocked to see headlines such as 'Scientists Prescribe a Healthy Dose of Sulphate Particles to Promote Global Cooling on the Cheap.' CNN tweeted that 'Harvard and Yale scientists are proposing that we tackle climate change by dimming the sun.' And the British tabloid The Express shouted 'GLOBAL WARMING SOLVED: Plans to DIM Sun by releasing CHEMICALS into atmosphere.' Such exaggerations — both positive and negative — are unfortunately common in media coverage of solar geoengineering."

LegalPlanet: Solar Geoengineering and International Law

"A couple weeks ago, I introduced solar geoengineering (see also 1, 2, 4 in the series). This is a set of proposed technologies that would reduce climate change by blocking or reflecting a small portion of incoming sunlight. It appears that it would be effective in reducing climate change, inexpensive, rapid, and technically feasible. It would also pose environmental risks and social challenges. Here, I offer a brief overview of the relevant legal landscape."

Harvard Kennedy School: Harvard Project Conducts Research Workshop on Governance of Solar Geoengineering

"The Harvard Project on Climate Agreements conducted a research workshop, “Governance of the Deployment of Solar Geoengineering,” September 27 – 28, 2018 at Harvard Kennedy School.  Harvard’s Solar Geoengineering Research Program (HSGRP) collaborated and provided support for the workshop. Participants included 26 leading academic researchers addressing the workshop’s topic as well as scholars who had considered the governance of other international regimes that might provide lessons and insights for solar geoengineering governance."

dezeen: Five geoengineering solutions proposed to fight climate change

"If humans can't reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, can we design our way out of climate-change catastrophe? Last week's UN report shone a light on geoengineering, a discipline that proposes large-scale interventions to counteract global warming. So what ideas are geoengineers proposing?"

The Green Optimistic: Geoengineering Could Solve Climate Change, Say Scientists

"Solar geoengineering sounds like the stuff of science fiction, using balloons or jets to introduce an atmospheric sunshade to stop global warming. A group of scientists from developing countries interested in solar geoengineering demanded to have a greater say in the direction of research into climate change, arguing that their countries have the most at stake."
