Kelly, David; et al. (2021): Solar Geoengineering, Learning, and Experimentation

Kelly, David; Heutel, Garth; Moreno-Cruz, Juan; Shayegh, Soheil (2021): Solar Geoengineering, Learning, and Experimentation. National Bureau of Economic Research. Cambridge, MA (Working Paper, 28442).

"We model endogenous learning over two uncertainties: the sensitivity of temperatures to carbon concentrations (the climate sensitivity), and the effectiveness of SGE in lowering temperatures. We present both theoretical and simulation results from an integrated assessment model, focusing on the informational value of SGE experimentation."
