Sapinski, J. P.; et al. (2020): Has it come to this? The promises and perils of geoengineering on the brink

Sapinski, J. P.; Buck, Holly Jean; Malm, Andreas (Eds.) (2020): Has it come to this? The promises and perils of geoengineering on the brink. New Brunswick, Camden: Rutgers University Press (Nature, society, and culture).

"How did we get into this situation where the most extreme path now seems a plausible development? Is it an accurate representation of where we are at? Who is this “we” who is talking? What options make it onto the table? Which are left out? Whom does geoengineering serve? Why is the ensemble of projects that goes by that name so salient, even though the community of researchers and advocates is remarkably small? These are some of the questions that the thinkers contributing to this volume are exploring from perspectives ranging from sociology and geography to ethics and indigenous studies."

Eos: Modeling the Effects of Geoengineering

"Geoengineering (deliberate, temporary modification of the climate system; also called climate intervention or climate engineering) is increasingly receiving attention as a field of study and a potential method of reducing the most severe negative effects of climate change. If decision-makers are going to seriously consider geoengineering as an option, they need to understand the risks of deploying geoengineering, as well as the risks of not doing so."
