Helwegen, K.; et al. (2019): Complementing CO2 emission reduction by Geoengineering might strongly enhance future welfare
Helwegen, K.; Wieners, C.; Frank, J.; Dijkstra, H. (2019): Complementing CO2 emission reduction by Geoengineering might strongly enhance future welfare. In: Earth Syst. Dynam. Discuss., S. 1–24. DOI: 10.5194/esd-2019-5.
"We find that SRM has the potential to greatly enhance future welfare and should therefore be taken seriously as a policy option. However, if only SRM and no CO2 abatement is used, global warming is not stabilised and will exceed 2K. Therefore, even if successful, SRM cannot replace but only complement CO2 abatement. The optimal policy combines CO2 abatement and modest SRM and succeeds in keeping global warming below 2K."
