Bhowmick, Mansi; et al. (2021): Response of the Indian summer monsoon to global warming, solar geoengineering and its termination

Bhowmick, Mansi; Mishra, Saroj Kanta; Kravitz, Ben; Sahany, Sandeep; Salunke, Popat (2021): Response of the Indian summer monsoon to global warming, solar geoengineering and its termination. In Sci Rep 11 (1), p. 9791. DOI: 10.1038/s41598-021-89249-6.

The response of the Indian Summer Monsoon (ISM) to global warming, solar geoengineering and its termination is examined using the multi-model mean of seven global climate model simulations from G2 experiment of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project.

Harrison, R. Giles; et al. (2021): Demonstration of a Remotely Piloted Atmospheric Measurement and Charge Release Platform for Geoengineering

Harrison, R. Giles; Nicoll, Keri A.; Tilley, Douglas J.; Marlton, Graeme J.; Chindea, Stefan; Dingley, Gavin P. et al. (2021): Demonstration of a Remotely Piloted Atmospheric Measurement and Charge Release Platform for Geoengineering. In Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology 38 (1), pp. 63–75. DOI: 10.1175/JTECH-D-20-0092.1.

"Electric charge is always present in the lower atmosphere. If droplets or aerosols become charged, their behavior changes, influencing collision, evaporation, and deposition. Artificial charge release is an unexplored potential geoengineering technique for modifying fogs, clouds, and rainfall. Central to evaluating these processes experimentally in the atmosphere is establishing an effective method for charge delivery."

Council on Foreign Relations: Can Solar Geoengineering Be Used as a Weapon?

"The premise that solar geoengineering is weaponizable is either false or grossly overstated. It is time to leave such distractions behind and focus more squarely on the real dilemmas of this otherwise promising technology."

Michaelowa, Axel (2021): Solar Radiation Modification ‐ A “Silver Bullet” Climate Policy for Populist and Authoritarian Regimes?

Michaelowa, Axel (2021): Solar Radiation Modification ‐ A “Silver Bullet” Climate Policy for Populist and Authoritarian Regimes? In Glob Policy 12 (S1), pp. 119–128. DOI: 10.1111/1758-5899.12872.

"We discuss the incentive structure and political economy that populist and authoritarian leaders may face regarding unilateral use of SRM and elaborate how the international community could try to prevent or at least ‘contain’ such unilateral uses of SRM. Unfortunately, such ‘containment’ is contingent on the most powerful states not being populist or authoritarian regimes."
