Kriegler, Elmar; et al. (2013): Is atmospheric carbon dioxide removal a game changer for climate change mitigation?

Kriegler, Elmar; Edenhofer, Ottmar; Reuster, Lena; Luderer, Gunnar; Klein, David (2013): Is atmospheric carbon dioxide removal a game changer for climate change mitigation? In: Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-012-0681-4

"The ability to directly remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere allows the decoupling of emissions and emissions control in space and time. We ask the question whether this unique feature of carbon dioxide removal technologies fundamentally alters the dynamics of climate mitigation pathways."

Gardiner, Stephen M. (2013): The Desperation Argument for Geoengineering. (final)

Gardiner, Stephen M. (2013): The Desperation Argument for Geoengineering. In: APSC 46 (01), pp. 28–33. DOI doi:10.1017/S1049096512001424

"Some argue that geoengineering by desperate nations would be justified, and that the developed nations ought to aid them through research on how to do it. In this paper, I explore two interpretations of such arguments and find them wanting. I also argue that, whether or not geoengineering by the desperate would be justified, focusing on justification alone obscures important aspects of the ethics of geoengineering. "

Klepper, Gernot; Rickels, Wilfried (2012): The Real Economics of Climate Engineering

Klepper, Gernot; Rickels, Wilfried (2012): The Real Economics of Climate Engineering. In: Economics Research International, pp. 1–20.

New calculation with formerly unknown costs. "Whereas Barrett was mostly focusing on the cost of running CE measures, we point out that several determinants of overall economic cost like price or external effects are not yet sufficiently accounted for and that the question of dynamic efficiency is still unresolved."
