Puno, Railla Veronica D. (2020): A Rights-Based Approach to Governance of Climate Geoengineering

Puno, Railla Veronica D. (2020): A Rights-Based Approach to Governance of Climate Geoengineering. In ELR 10744.

"This Article explores a rights-based approach for the governance of geoengineering in international law, including the impetus, rationale, and options for implementation. The approach would take into account the need for participation, accountability, nondiscrimination, and equality in its development and deployment, while addressing the potential of such technologies in mitigating the impacts that climate change would have to the full enjoyment of human rights, including the right to a healthy environment."

Morrow, David R.; et al. (2020): Principles for Thinking about Carbon Dioxide Removal in Just Climate Policy

Morrow, David R.; Thompson, Michael S.; Anderson, Angela; Batres, Maya; Buck, Holly J.; Dooley, Kate et al. (2020): Principles for Thinking about Carbon Dioxide Removal in Just Climate Policy. In One Earth 3 (2), pp. 150–153. DOI: 10.1016/j.oneear.2020.07.015.

"Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) is rising up the climate-policy agenda. Four principles for thinking about its role in climate policy can help ensure that CDR supports the kind of robust, abatement-focused long-term climate strategy that is essential to fair and effective implementation."

Phys.org: Can solar geoengineering mitigate both climate change and income inequality?

"While de-carbonizing the world's emissions sources continues to pose a large challenge, solar geoengineering, which is process where incoming sunlight is intentionally reflected to cool rising temperatures, could help avoid the worst consequences of global warming. This analysis is the first to project the response of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to the specific pattern of cooling solar geoengineering produces."
