Garcia, Robert K. (2014): Towards a Just Solar Radiation Management Compensation System: A Defense of the Polluter Pays Principle

Garcia, Robert K. (2014): Towards a Just Solar Radiation Management Compensation System: A Defense of the Polluter Pays Principle. In Ethics, Policy & Environment 17 (2), pp. 178–182. DOI 10.1080/21550085.2014.926079.

"I will do so by focusing on one of S&I’s important ethical challenges, their claim that the polluter pays principle (PPP) is too problematic to be useful in determining responsibility for SRM compensation."

Cusack, Daniela F.; et al. (2014): An interdisciplinary assessment of climate engineering strategies

Cusack, Daniela F.; Axsen, Jonn; Shwom, Rachael; Hartzell-Nichols, Lauren; White, Sam; Mackey, Katherine R. M. (2014): An interdisciplinary assessment of climate engineering strategies. In Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment 12 (5), pp. 280–287. DOI 10.1890/130030.

"Here, we develop and apply criteria to measure technical, economic, ecological, institutional, and ethical dimensions of, and public acceptance for, climate engineering strategies; provide a relative rating for each dimension; and offer a new interdisciplinary framework for comparing abatement and climate engineering options."
