Boyd, Philip W. (2016): Development of geopolitically-relevant ranking criteria for geoengineering methods

Boyd, Philip W. (2016): Development of geopolitically-relevant ranking criteria for geoengineering methods. In Earth’s Future, n/a‐n/a. DOI 10.1002/2016EF000447.

"Here, I use the Pinatubo archives to develop a range of geopolitically-relevant ranking criteria for a suite of different geoengineering approaches. The criteria focus on the spatial scales needed for geoengineering, and whether large-scale dispersal is a necessary requirement for a technique to deliver significant cooling or carbon dioxide reductions. These categories in turn inform whether geoengineering approaches are amenable to participation (the ‘democracy of geoengineering’), and whether they will lead to transboundary issues which could precipitate geopolitical conflicts."
