OpinioJuris: Geoengineering and the Use of Force

"It is now widely accepted that the climate change crisis is going to contribute to increasing levels of armed conflict among and within states in the coming decades. Less widely considered is the effect the crisis may have on the jus ad bellum regime."

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."

Lockley, A.; Futerman, G.; Coffman, D. (2020): Geoengineering and Public Trust Doctrine

Lockley, A.; Futerman, G.; Coffman, D. (2020): Geoengineering and Public Trust Doctrine. In Carbon & Climate Law Review 14 (2), pp. 85–97. DOI: 10.21552/cclr/2020/2/4.

"We consider various types of geoengineering to protect example assets currently under PTD, finding a compelling case for action in a variety of contexts. This introduces a paradoxical situation, where it may theoretically be easier to compel states to undertake geoengineering to protect a beach, than to protect the whole planet."
