Horton, J. B. (2011), ‘Geoengineering and the Myth of Unilateralism

Horton, J. B. (2011), ‘Geoengineering and the Myth of Unilateralism: Pressures and Prospects for International Cooperation’, Stanford Journal of Law, Science & Policy, IV: 56–69.

"In this article, I argue that fear of unilateralism is largely misplaced, grounded more in unexamined policy assumptions than in reasoned analysis of the strategic situation faced by states. I will present this argument in five parts. First, I will document the widespread notion that unilateral geoengineering poses a genuine threat to the international order. Second, I will closely examine the interests and constraints that are likely to confront states contemplating intervention in the climate system. Third, I will demonstrate that international dynamics are
more likely to create pressures leading to cooperation than to foster tendencies toward unilateralism. Fourth, I will consider different mechanisms for encouraging collaboration on climate intervention strategies. Finally, I will consider the implications of this argument for future discussions of geoengineering."
