Emmerling, Johannes; Tavoni, Massimo (2017): Climate Engineering and Abatement. A ‘flat’ Relationship Under Uncertainty
"The potential of climate engineering to substitute or complement abatement of greenhouse gas emissions has been increasingly debated over the last years. The scientific assessment is driven to a large extent by assumptions regarding its effectiveness, costs, and impacts, all of which are profoundly uncertain. We investigate how this uncertainty about climate engineering affects the optimal abatement policy in the near term."
