Svoboda, Toby; Irvine, Peter (2014): Ethical and Technical Challenges in Compensating for Harm Due to Solar Radiation Management Geoengineering

Svoboda, Toby; Irvine, Peter (2014): Ethical and Technical Challenges in Compensating for Harm Due to Solar Radiation Management Geoengineering. In Ethics, Policy & Environment 17 (2), pp. 157–174. DOI 10.1080/21550085.2014.927962.

"First, there is scientific uncertainty in detecting particular harmful impacts and causally attributing them to SRM. Second, there is ethical uncertainty regarding what principles should be used to determine responsibility and eligibility for compensation, as well as determining how much compensation ought to be paid."

Schäfer, Stefan; et al. (2013): Field tests of solar climate engineering

Schäfer, Stefan; Irvine, Peter J.; Hubert, Anna-Maria; Reichwein, David; Low, Sean; Stelzer, Harald et al. (2013): Field tests of solar climate engineering. In Nature Climate change 3 (9), p. 766. DOI 10.1038/nclimate1987.

"All of these proposals acknowledge a need for some form of governance, such as national oversight by funding bodies, but they also share a common supposition that smallscale testing should proceed even in the absence of further international agreement. However, there are strong reasons to refrain from such testing until some form of international cooperation on climate engineering has been established."
