Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (2018): The UK government’s view on geo-engineering. Geoengineering position update May 2018

Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (2018): The UK government’s view on geo-engineering. Geoengineering position update May 2018. With assistance of Cathy Johnson. UK Government.

"The Government has no current policies to deploy specific GGR technologies beyond existing commitments to plant 11 million trees in England, to increase the amount of UK timber used in construction, and to restore peatland. [...] The UK Government is not commissioning further research into SRM, but the World Climate Research Programme’s (WCRP’s) Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP), is investigating the effects which SRM would have on the climate."

Kreuter, Judith (2018): Climate engineering & political decision-making. The polarity in academic debate

Kreuter, Judith (2018): Climate engineering & political decision-making. The polarity in academic debate. Innovations in Climate Governance (INOGROV Policy Brief, 4).

"This INOGOV policy brief analyses the importance of polarity in academic debate surrounding climate engineering. It discusses the fact that while climate engineering approaches cannot yet be considered ‘physically tangible technological objects’ because they have not been implemented on a large scale; there is currently a unique opportunity to actively and critically shape the way in which we consider these approaches in the political debate."

Honegger, Matthias; et al. (2018): Carbon Removal and Solar Geoengineering: Potential implications for delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals

Honegger, Matthias; Derwent, Henry; Harrison, Nicholas; Michaelowa, Axel; Schäfer, Stefan (2018): Carbon Removal and Solar Geoengineering: Potential implications for delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals. Carnegie Climate Geoengineering Governance Initiative (C2G2). New York.

"C2G2, together with three partner organisations, worked with experts from over 20 countries to establish what we know, and what we don’t know, about how Carbon Removal and Solar Geoengineering technologies might affect the SDGs. Research indicates that at least three quarters of the SDGs would likely be affected in some way if large-scale Carbon Removal or Solar Geoengineering were to be deployed. Should they prove feasible, effective and desirable, these technologies might contribute to limiting the impact of climate change on the SDGs."
