C2G Guest Post: Building capacity for industry to engage with carbon removal via a Carbon Removal Playbook

"If the community is in agreement that a discourse about carbon removal is indeed justified, there is a need to create a more expansive, inclusive, multi-perspective dialogue about the realities, rather than the ideals, for removing carbon. In particular, there is a need to engage the players who are implicitly relied on to finance carbon removal."

Union of Concerned Scientists (2020): Strengthening Public Input on Solar Geoengineering Research

Union of Concerned Scientists (2020): Strengthening Public Input on Solar Geoengineering Research. What’s needed for decisionmaking on atmospheric experiments. Report.

"Although solar geoengineering would have many uncertain impacts and comes with risks, given the growing severity of climate impacts, they merit closer consideration. And as researchers are beginning to design atmospheric experiments to assess how effective and risky these methods are, informed public debate is needed over whether and how such research should proceed."

The Wire Science: Should Human Attempts to Modify the Climate Be Considered a Public Good?

"In a new study published in the journal Global Transitions, Robert Holahan, an associate professor at Binghamton University, New York, and I argue that the technical definition of public goods in economics detracts from the central question of stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI)."

Conca, Ken (2019): Prospects for a multi-stakeholder dialogue on climate engineering

Conca, Ken (2019): Prospects for a multi-stakeholder dialogue on climate engineering. In Environmental Politics 28 (3), pp. 417–440. DOI: 10.1080/09644016.2018.1522065.

"Lessons from the literature on multi-stakeholder dialogue (MSD) that are relevant to the debate on climate engineering (CE) are examined. MSDs have been used to prod slow-to-develop intergovernmental regulatory processes on a range of transnational and global controversies. A CEMSD might push forward anticipatory governance of CE by promoting social learning, sharpening and legitimizing governance norms, and starting to arrange the political space for governance by states."
