Keith, David W.; MacMartin, Douglas G. (2015): A temporary, moderate and responsive scenario for solar geoengineering

Keith, David W.; MacMartin, Douglas G. (2015): A temporary, moderate and responsive scenario for solar geoengineering. In Nature Climate change. DOI 10.1038/nclimate2493.

"Most analyses assume, for example, that SRM would be used to stop the increase in global temperature or restore temperature to pre-industrial values. We argue that these are poor scenario choices on which to base policy-relevant judgements about SRM."

Doughty, Jack (2015): Past Forays into SRM Field Research and Implications for Future Governance

Doughty, Jack (2015): Past Forays into SRM Field Research and Implications for Future Governance (Geoengineering Our Climate? Working Paper and Opinion Article Series). 

"Exploring these experiments illustrates the varying degrees to which scientists have wrestled with the ethical, social and environmental governance concerns that have been raised by many. Exploring how these past outdoor research projects were carried out (or not, as is the case with SPICE) highlights the need for existing governance to be adapted to ensure that these concerns are addressed."

Latham, John; et al. (2014): Introduction: Climate engineering: exploring nuances and consequences of deliberately altering the Earth's energy budget

Latham, John; Rasch, Philip J.; Launder, Brian Edward (2014): Introduction: Climate engineering: exploring nuances and consequences of deliberately altering the Earth's energy budget. In Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society 372 (2031). DOI 10.1098/rsta.2014.0050.

"This Theme Issue explores details of (i) the fundamental physics and chemistry of what we (the editors) perceive to be the most feasible of the announced CE methods; (ii) possible field experiments that can be used to examine science's understanding of those processes and (iii) societal issues associated with the testing of CE and its impact on the planet. Indeed, the issue seeks to draw together research relevant to these disparate areas."

The Citizen Daily: Controversial Climate Engineering

On CE in general. "Climate engineering has been on the rise in recent years as an alternative solution to deal with the issue of global warming. The rise of climate engineering is closely related to disappointment with models used to address global warming all this time."
