Caldeira, Ken; Ricke, Katharine L. (2013): Prudence on solar climate engineering

Caldeira, Ken; Ricke, Katharine L. (2013): Prudence on solar climate engineering. In Nature Climate change 3 (11), p. 941–941. DOI 10.1038/nclimate2036

"The call for prudence by Schäfer et al. (Nature Clim. Change 3, 766; 2013) in relation to field tests of solar climate engineering is welcome. We applaud their effort to help establish informal norms to stifle counterproductive experimentation. However, we should be careful to make sure that what is called ‘prudence’ does not hamper beneficial scientific and technical investigation."

Amelung, Dorothee; Funke, Joachim (2013): Dealing with the uncertainties of climate engineering: Warnings from a psychological complex problem solving perspective

Amelung, Dorothee; Funke, Joachim (2013): Dealing with the uncertainties of climate engineering: Warnings from a psychological complex problem solving perspective. In: Technology in Society 35 (1), pp. 32–40.

"By adopting the psychological perspective of complex problem solving research, we analyze one frequently neglected source of uncertainty with regard to climate engineering: errors of the political problem-solver in his interaction with the situational demands of complex problems."
