Dowell, Glen; et al. (2020): Rooting carbon dioxide removal research in the social sciences

Dowell, Glen; Niederdeppe, Jeff; Vanucchi, Jamie; Dogan, Timur; Donaghy, Kieran; Jacobson, Rory et al. (2020): Rooting carbon dioxide removal research in the social sciences. In Interface Focus. 10 (5), p. 20190138. DOI: 10.1098/rsfs.2019.0138.

"As the need for rapid, effective and successful CDR has only increased since that time, we argue that CDR researchers from across the spectrum must come together in ways that simultaneously address the technical, social, political, economic and cultural elements of CDR development, commercialization, adoption and diffusion if the academy is to have a material impact on climate change in the increasingly limited window we have to address it."

Markusson, Nils; et al. 2020: “Social Science Sequestered.”

Markusson, Nils, Nazmiye Balta-Ozkan, Jason Chilvers, Peter Healey, David Reiner, and Duncan McLaren. 2020: “Social Science Sequestered.” Frontiers in Climate. https://doi.org/10.3389/fclim.2020.00002.

"Greenhouse gas removal (GGR) raises many cultural, ethical, legal, social and political issues, yet in the growing area of GGR research, humanities and social sciences (HASS) research is often marginalised, constrained and depoliticised. This global dynamic is illustrated by an analysis of the UK GGR research programme."

Bellamy, Rob; et al. (2017): Public perceptions of geoengineering research governance. An experimental deliberative approach

"Public perceptions of geoengineering experiments were explored in three workshops. Majoritarian, consensual and individualistic deliberations were experimentally created. The perceived controllability of experiments is central to public acceptability. Legitimacy of experiments will depend on combinations of four controllability criteria. Technical determinations of scale or location will be poor predictors of public concerns."
