Video: Assessing Carbon Removal webinar series: Governance of Marine Geoengineering

"In this webinar, Kerryn Brent, University of Adelaide; Wil Burns, Co-Director of the Institute for Carbon Removal Law & Policy; and Jeffrey McGee, University of Tasmania will discuss the potential role of marine climate geoengineering approaches such as ocean alkalinity enhancement and "blue carbon." Focusing on the governance of marine geoengineering research and deployment, along with potential risks of this approach, this webinar come on the heels of CIGI's Special Report on the topic authored by Brent, Burns, and McGee."

Park, Chang‐Eui; et al. (2019): Inequal Responses of Drylands to Radiative Forcing Geoengineering Methods

Park, Chang‐Eui, Su‐Jong Jeong, Yuanchao Fan, Jerry Tjiputra, Helene Muri, and Chunmiao Zheng (2019): Inequal Responses of Drylands to Radiative Forcing Geoengineering Methods. Geophysical Research Letters, December. https://doi.org/10.1029/2019gl084210.

‌"We show noticeable inequality in the responses of drylands when three radiative forcing geoengineering (RFG) methodologies—cirrus cloud thinning (CCT), marine sky brightening (MSB), and stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI)—individually reduce the radiative forcing of the representative concentration pathway 8.5 scenario using a set of the Norwegian Earth system model (NorESM1‐ME) experiments."

CIGI Special Report: Governance of Marine Geoengineering

"Marine geoengineering proposals show significant diversity in terms of their purpose, scale of application, likely effectiveness, requisite levels of international cooperation and intensity of environmental risks. This diversity of marine geoengineering activities will likely place significant new demands upon the international law system to govern potential risks and opportunities."

Gambardella, S. (2019): The Stormy Emergence of Geoengineering in the International Law of the Sea

Gambardella, S. 2019. “The Stormy Emergence of Geoengineering in the International Law of the Sea.” Carbon & Climate Law Review 13 (2): 122–29. https://doi.org/10.21552/cclr/2019/2/7.

‌"This study aims to look at the role that international environmental law could or should play in the development of geoengineering. The discussions that have taken place on geoengineering in international fora are rich in lessons about these rights themselves and with regard to their effectiveness and efficiency. Thus, questions of ‘good governance’ emerge. It is therefore a question of presenting the various possibilities offered by international law to frame - even forbid - these new practices."

White Paper. Available online at https://foundationforclimaterestoration.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/20190916b_f4cr4_white-paper.pdf.

"The purpose of this paper is to show that we do not in fact need to leave dangerous, unprecedented conditions to our progeny. We have the technology and the financing, now, to reclaim the climate of over a century ago. What we need is the commitment to do so."
