The support for the so-called carbon management economy takes many shapes within the bill, and is largely based on the SCALE Act reintroduced earlier this year by senators on both sides of the aisle.

Ott, Konrad (2018): On the Political Economy of Solar Radiation Management

Ott, Konrad (2018): On the Political Economy of Solar Radiation Management. In Front. Environ. Sci. 6, p. 29. DOI: 10.3389/fenvs.2018.00043.

"The paper concludes that the U.S. economic system has strong affinities to SRM supported by an emerging agency network that tries to establish a pro-SRM narrative and launch SAI research initiatives. There is recent evidence that SRM has found support from policy makers. To supporters of “green” variants of capitalism, the main claims of the article provide reasons against SAI-research. The article finishes with some remarks why SAI-research should be conditional."
