McKinnon, Catriona (2020): The Panglossian politics of the geoclique

McKinnon, Catriona (2020): The Panglossian politics of the geoclique. In Critical Review of International Social and Political Philosophy 23 (5), pp. 584–599. DOI: 10.1080/13698230.2020.1694216.

"Two prominent geoengineering researchers have recently argued that the risk of termination shock could be minimised through the adoption of ‘relatively simple’ policies. This paper shows their arguments to be premised on heroically optimistic assumptions about the prospects for global cooperation and sustained trust in an SRM deployment scenario. The paper argues that worst-case scenarios are the right place to start in thinking about the governance of SRM."
