Keith, David W.; et al. (2016): Modeling the effects of climate engineering

Keith, David W.; Wagner, Gernot; Moreno-Cruz, Juan B. (2016): Modeling the effects of climate engineering. In Science 352 (6293), pp. 1526–1527. DOI 10.1126/science.aag1630

"SRM is an important part of the future climate policy research agenda, as illustrated by the latest National Academy of
Sciences report. Economists need to embrace research on SRM technologies, recognize their capacity to disrupt
the climate policy agenda, focus on understanding the new impacts and risks introduced, and integrate this new  understanding into models and policy design."
