Felgenhauer, Tyler; et al. (2021): Solar geoengineering research on the U.S. policy agenda: when might its time come?

Felgenhauer, Tyler; Horton, Joshua; Keith, David (2021): Solar geoengineering research on the U.S. policy agenda: when might its time come? In Environmental Politics, pp. 1–21. DOI: 10.1080/09644016.2021.1933763.
