Nelson, John P.; et al. (2020): Assessing solar geoengineering research funders: Insights from two US public deliberations

Nelson, John P.; Kaplan, Leah; Tomblin, David (2020): Assessing solar geoengineering research funders: Insights from two US public deliberations. In The Anthropocene Review, 205301962096484. DOI: 10.1177/2053019620964845.

"For both normative and pragmatic reasons, actors interested in SRM research and implementation would do well to attend to public preferences and concerns regarding SRM work. But despite growing literature treating public perspectives on SRM governance, little is known about public perceptions or preferences regarding potential SRM research funders. Specific research funders could significantly affect both the varieties, scales, and aims of research performed and public responses to SRM research. Drawing from two deliberative public forums on SRM research involving 171 participants in total, this paper begins to fill this gap in the literature."
