Akademien der Wissenschaften Schweiz (2018): Reverse emissions or influence solar radiation: Is “geoengineering” worthwhile, feasible and if so, at what price?

Akademien der Wissenschaften Schweiz (2018): Reverse emissions or influence solar radiation: Is “geoengineering” worthwhile, feasible and if so, at what price? Swiss Academies Factsheets 13 (4). Doi: 10.5281/zenodo.1409025

"The aim of the Paris Agreement is to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius, if possible even 1.5 degrees Celsius. Various scenarios show that very great efforts are necessary to achieve these goals through emission reduction measures alone. This motivates the search for additional solutions. Technical interventions in the climatesystem, often referred to by collective terms such as “geoengineering” or “climate intervention”, are therefore discussed."

Co.exist Blog: Chemotherapy For The Planet: Geoengineering As A Solution Of Last Resort

"Stanford scientist Ken Caldeira is busy working out models for a system to pump the atmosphere so full of sulfur that it cools the planet. It could have disastrous consequences--but would they be worse than total planetary destruction?"
