C2G Talk: An interview with Youba Sokona: How do we include sustainable development when considering climate-altering approaches?

"Context matters and without clarity on the impacts that climate-altering approaches will have from different perspectives, it will be difficult to deal with the ethical and governance dimensions, said Youba Sokona during a C2GTalk interview. He highlights the need for research that not only considers the global level, but seeks to understand the national and local levels where people’s lives are impacted."

Lenzi, Dominic (2021): On the Permissibility (Or Otherwise) of Negative Emissions

Lenzi, Dominic (2021): On the Permissibility (Or Otherwise) of Negative Emissions. In Ethics, Policy & Environment, pp. 1–14. DOI: 10.1080/21550085.2021.1885249.

"While NETs are not risk-free, I argue that they could be part of minimally just responses to climate change. In doing so, I identify a dilemma between limiting warming to 1.5 ° C, which promises lower climate impacts but implies greater NETs risks, and 2°C, which requires less NETs but promises greater climate impacts. Finally, I consider what the case of NETs reveals about permissibility in the face of non-compliance with principles of climate justice."

The Hill: Geoengineering must stay peaceful

"However, if the moral and ethical frame of geoengineering should shift from one of global benevolence where all stakeholders have a voice and international law applies, to one of national security and international law is dismissed, a climate arms race becomes more likely."

Morton, Evvan V. (2020): Reframing the Climate Change Problem: Evaluating the Political, Technological, and Ethical Management of Carbon Dioxide Emissions in the United States

Morton, Evvan V. (2020): Reframing the Climate Change Problem: Evaluating the Political, Technological, and Ethical Management of Carbon Dioxide Emissions in the United States. Doctoral Dissertation. Arizona State University. Available online at https://repository.asu.edu/items/57290.

"Although research also confirms that negative emission technologies (NETs) are necessary to stay within 1.5-2°C of global warming, this dissertation proposes that the climate change problem has been ineffectively communicated to suggest that CO2 emissions reduction is the only solution to climate change."

Geographical: Engineering the climate: the controversial science that could cool our atmosphere

"Katie Burton explores the practicalities and ethics of geoengineering, the controversial science that could quickly cool the atmosphere. Is it the last ditch climate solution that nobody wants? Or are appetites for geoengineering solutions growing with our warming climate?"
