YaleEnvironment360: Geoengineer the Planet? More Scientists Now Say It Must Be an Option

"Human intervention with the climate system has long been viewed as an ill-advised and risky step to slow global warming. But with carbon emissions soaring, initiatives to study and develop geoengineering technologies are gaining traction as a potential last resort."

Gardiner, S.; et al. (2019): Geoengineering, Political Legitimacy and Justice

Gardiner, S.; Fragnière, A. (2019): Geoengineering, Political Legitimacy and Justice. In: Ethics, Policy & Environment 21 (3), S. 265–269. DOI: 10.1080/21550085.2018.1562524.

"Technologies which might be deployed to attempt geoengineering are either speculative or only in the very early stages of development. [...] Despite their speculative nature, discussion of geoengineering technologies is growing rapidly in science and policy circles. Having for decades largely been dismissed as irrelevant or counterproductive to serious discussion, some now advocate for geoengineering techniques as possible ‘tools in the toolkit’ for future climate action. "

Project Syndicate: Let’s Talk About Geoengineering

"There is growing scientific interest in solar geoengineering as a possible means of combating climate change in conjunction with emissions cuts. But by foregoing debate and research on these new technologies now, political leaders may actually increase the risks of their future misuse."

Huffpost: The King Of Climate Fiction Makes The Left’s Case For Geoengineering

"Kim Stanley Robinson’s most recent novel imagines a world rocked by a catastrophic rise in sea levels more than a century from now. But in the weeks after a historic heat wave roasted much of the planet, the lauded science fiction writer’s concerns about geoengineering feel much more pressing."

Petersen, Arthur C. (2014): The Emergence of the Geoengineering Debate Within The IPCC (Case Study)

Petersen, Arthur C. (2014): The Emergence of the Geoengineering Debate Within The IPCC (Case Study) (Geoengineering Our Climate? Working Paper and Opinion Article Series).

"Firstly, the IPCC has a long history of dealing with geoengineering and, secondly, the IPCC performs its assessments  without endorsing any options and being based on what is available in the primary literature. Still, there is no way to deny that the way the IPCC summarises the science does have an influence on how a particular subject is subsequently discussed in policy-making."
