Táíwò, Olúfẹmi O.; Talati, Shuchi (2021): Who Are the Engineers? Solar Geoengineering Research and Justice

Táíwò, Olúfẹmi O.; Talati, Shuchi (2021): Who Are the Engineers? Solar Geoengineering Research and Justice. In Global Environmental Politics, pp. 1–7. DOI: 10.1162/glep_a_00620.

"This commentary is a response to arguments that advocate for abandoning solar geoengineering research altogether because it perpetuates colonialism and promotes injustice. We find, however, that this brand of argument is itself performatively colonial and recommend a more inclusive framework for solar geoengineering governance that integrates existing research on relevant structures."

Podcast: Daniele Visioni and Gideon Futerman discuss the Event Solar Geoengineering: Warnings from Scientists, Indigenous Peoples, Youth, and Climate Activists

"His research is currently focused on studying Sulfate Geoengineering, a form of climate engineering that aims to partially, temporarily, offset the effects of climate change by means of injecting sulfate precursors in the stratosphere in order to reflect a small part of the incoming solar radiation and thus reduce global temperatures."

Batres, Maya; et al. (2021): Environmental and climate justice and technological carbon removal

Batres, Maya; Wang, Frances M.; Buck, Holly; Kapila, Rudra; Kosar, Ugbaad; Licker, Rachel et al. (2021): Environmental and climate justice and technological carbon removal. In The Electricity Journal 34 (7), p. 107002. DOI: 10.1016/j.tej.2021.107002.

"In this paper we map dimensions of environmental and climate justice that stakeholders and communities will need to consider -- from local to global scales. Mapping issues is a step towards developing frameworks to undertake CDR in an environmentally just way."

Progressive International: Holly Jean Buck: How to Decolonize the Atmosphere

"Carbon removal discussions often start with a bunch of mind-bending numbers: Curbing warming to 1.5°C relies upon removing 100–1000 billion tons (or gigatons, Gt) from the atmosphere over the course of this century, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change."

The Arctic Institute: Sámi Council resistance to SCoPEX highlights the complex questions surrounding geoengineering and consent

"The Council’s objections first address solar geoengineering as a whole, highlighting the uncertainty and the risks of its implementation. They specifically underscore the consequences of abrupt cessation, suggesting that this could lead to a ‘termination shock’ that would trigger a dramatic temperature rise."
