Jamieson, Dale (2013): Some whats, whys and worries of geoengineering

Jamieson, Dale (2013): Some whats, whys and worries of geoengineering. In Climatic Change. DOI 10.1007/s10584-013-0862-9.

"In this paper I discuss the nature of geoengineering, some of its attractions, and some reasons for concern. I claim that there is confusion in the use of the term ‘geoengineering’ that is related to larger concerns about the language in which responses to climate change are discussed. I conclude that despite some reasonable grounds for suspicion, research in areas that involve carbon dioxide removal and solar radiation management should go on as part of the general portfolio of climate-related research, competing with the full panoply of other possible responses to climate change."
