Pacific Standard: The Billionaires' Guide to Hacking the Planet

"SRM refers to "solar radiation management," the most frequently discussed form of geoengineering, which involves injecting aerosols in the stratosphere to cool the planet—much like major volcanic eruptions do naturally. The other key term here is "unilateral action." This refers to the possibility that someone might simply take matters into his own hands."

Kravitz, B., Robock, A., Boucher, O. et al. (2011), ‘The Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP)

Kravitz, B., Robock, A., Boucher, O. et al. (2011), ‘The Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP)’, Atmosph. Sci. Lett, 12/2: 162–167. DOI 10.1002/asl.316

"To evaluate the effects of stratospheric geoengineering with sulphate aerosols, we propose standard forcing scenarios to be applied to multiple climate models to compare their results and determine the robustness of their responses. Thus far, different modeling groups have used different forcing scenarios for both global warming and geoengineering, complicating the comparison of results. We recommend four experiments to explore the extent to which geoengineering might offset climate change projected in some of the Climate Model Intercomparison Project 5 experiments. These experiments focus on stratospheric aerosols, but future experiments under this framework may focus on different means of geoengineering."
