Wageningen University press release: Climate engineering offers little hope of mitigation

Press release for Barrett, Scott; et al. (2014). "Injecting particles into the stratosphere to shade and cool the Earth will never stop climate change. This is the shocking claim made in the July issue of Nature Climate Change by an international group of prominent scientists, including Dutchmen Marten Scheffer from Wageningen University and Aart de Zeeuw from Tilburg University."

Fernow, Hannes (2014): Climate Change in the Age of Technical Reproducibility – Climate Engineering between Risk and Practice (German)

Fernow, Hannes (2014): Der Klimawandel im Zeitalter technischer Reproduzierbarkeit. Climate Engineering zwischen Risiko und Praxis. Wiesbaden: Springer. (English: Climate Change in the Age of Technical Reproducibility – Climate Engineering between Risk and Practice)

German philosophical work on CE. "Hannes Fernow interdisciplinary intruduces the topic of climate engineering. It integrates as part of a political hermeneutic philosophy of science, technology, philosophy and environmental ethics arguments in the historically established perceptions of risk and nature, and shows that the impact of technological changes in climate can not be reliably predicted."

Climate Snack Blog: Sulphate Aerosol Geo-engineering: A simple solution?

Blog post on sulfuric particle injection. "So, while sulphate aerosol geo-engineering is indeed a solution to our original problem, that of climate change caused by global warming, it will almost certainly lead to a cascade of unexpected consequences which would then require further solutions."
