Harnisch, Sebastian; et al. (2015): From ‘Go Slow’ to ‘Gung Ho’? Climate Engineering Discourses in the UK, the US, and Germany

Harnisch, Sebastian; Uther, Stephanie; Böttcher, Miranda (2015): From ‘Go Slow’ to ‘Gung Ho’? Climate Engineering Discourses in the UK, the US, and Germany. In Global Environmental Politics 15 (2), pp. 57–78. DOI 10.1162/GLEP_a_00298.

"To show the process of legitimacy formation of CE research, we traced the development of argumentatvie structures in national discourses by means of qualitative and quantitative structures in national discourses by means of qualitative and quantitative case studies. We complemented arguments previously identified in CE literature and identified key actors connected by their joint utilization of certain arguments and narratives."

Bellamy, Rob; Lezaun, Javier (2015): A Review of Deliberative Public Engagements with Climate Geoengineering

Bellamy, Rob; Lezaun, Javier (2015): A Review of Deliberative Public Engagements with Climate Geoengineering (CGG Working Papers, 19).

"We describe the initial framing of geoengineering as a tractable deliberative object, and subsequent attempts to ‘unframe’ the issue by placing it within broader discursive fields."

Markusson, Nils; Wong, Pak-Hang (2015): Geoengineering Governance, the Linear Model of Innovation, and the Accompanying Geoengineering Approach

Markusson, Nils; Wong, Pak-Hang (2015): Geoengineering Governance, the Linear Model of Innovation, and the Accompanying Geoengineering Approach (CGG Working Papers, 20).

"This paper aims to address the lack of critique of the linear model in geoengineering governance discourse, and to illustrate different considerations for a geoengineering governance framework that is not based on a linear model of technology innovation. Finally, we set to explore a particular approach to geoengineering governance based on Peter-Paul Verbeek’s notion of ‘technology accompaniment’."

Washington Post: The term that actually makes climate change less political

Media response to Kahan, D. M.; et al. (2015). "A new study, published recently in the Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, confirms what we knew — that government proposals to cut greenhouse-gas emissions polarize us over climate change. But it also tells us of a potential policy that actually somewhat depolarizes people, while still getting them to care about climate change: geoengineering."

Maalick, Z.; et al. (2014): Modelling artificial sea salt emission in large eddy simulations

Maalick, Z.; Korhonen, Hannele; Kokkola, Harri; Kühn, T.; Romakkaniemi, Sami (2014): Modelling artificial sea salt emission in large eddy simulations. In Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society 372 (2031). DOI 10.1098/rsta.2014.0051.

"We study the dispersion of sea salt particles from artificially injected sea spray at a cloud-resolving scale. Understanding of how different aerosol processes affect particle dispersion is crucial when designing emission sources for marine cloud brightening."
