Schneider, Tapio; et al. (2020): Solar geoengineering may not prevent strong warming from direct effects of CO2 on stratocumulus cloud cover

Schneider, Tapio; Kaul, Colleen M.; Pressel, Kyle G. (2020): Solar geoengineering may not prevent strong warming from direct effects of CO2 on stratocumulus cloud cover. In Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. DOI: 10.1073/pnas.2003730117.

"Solar geoengineering that manipulates the amount of sunlight Earth absorbs is increasingly discussed as an option to counter global warming. However, we demonstrate that solar geoengineering is not a fail-safe option to prevent global warming because it does not mitigate risks to the climate system that arise from direct effects of greenhouse gases on cloud cover"

C2G Guest Post: 5 lessons from COVID-19 for solar geoengineering

"If the idea of suppressing temperature rise by injecting an aerosol into the sky leaves the realm of modelling and experiments, it will be thrust into a science-media-politics environment that operates in ways that are not currently anticipated—at least not in idealized modelling studies."

Boston Globe: Some wonder if we could geoengineer our way out of climate crisis

"Proposed solar geoengineering technologies to cool our warming earth by reflecting incoming sunlight could have greater benefits than harms only in a world that is firmly on a path to dramatically reduce heat-trapping emissions from burning fossil fuels."
