Neuber, Frederike; Ott, Konrad (2020): The Buying Time Argument within the Solar Radiation Management Discourse

Neuber, Frederike; Ott, Konrad (2020): The Buying Time Argument within the Solar Radiation Management Discourse. In Applied Sciences 10 (13), p. 4637. DOI: 10.3390/app10134637.

"In this article, we will establish a version of the buying time argument (BTA) in favor of Sulphur Aerosol Injection (SAI) Climate Engineering (CE). The idea is not to promote the deployment of such scheme, but rather to present the strongest possible argument pro SAI in order to look at its presuppositions, implications, critical points and uncertainties."

Independent: Pseudoscience is taking over social media and putting us all at risk

"The videos peddling the conspiracy theories received the highest number of views. And those spreading these conspiracy theories used terms like 'geoengineering' to make it seem like their claims had a scientific basis when, in fact, they did not."

Colvin, R.; et al. (2019): Learning from the Climate Change Debate to Avoid Polarisation on Negative Emissions

Colvin, R.; Kemp, L.; Talberg, A.; Castella, C. de; Downie, C.; Friel, S. et al. (2019): Learning from the Climate Change Debate to Avoid Polarisation on Negative Emissions. In: Environmental Communication 28, S. 1–13. DOI: 10.1080/17524032.2019.1630463.

"This paper identifies critical lessons from the climate change experience to guide how communications and engagement on negative emissions can be conducted to encourage functional public and policy discourse. Negative emissions technologies present a significant opportunity for limiting climate change, and are likely to be necessary to keep warming below 2°C."

Biermann, F.; et al. (2019): Rich man’s solution? Climate engineering discourses and the marginalization of the Global South

Biermann, F.; Möller, I. (2019): Rich man’s solution? Climate engineering discourses and the marginalization of the Global South. In: Int Environ Agreements 17 (1), S. 21. DOI: 10.1007/s10784-019-09431-0.

"Numerous recent studies project that ‘climate engineering’ technologies might need to play a major role in the future. Such technologies may carry major risks for developing countries that are often especially vulnerable to, and lack adaptive capacity to deal with, the impacts of such new technologies. [...] The article concludes by sketching options that developing countries may have to influence the agenda on climate engineering, reflecting on earlier attempts to increase control over novel technologies and influence global agenda setting."
