Lenton, A.; et al. (2019): Foresight must guide geoengineering research and development

Lenton, A.; Boyd, P.; Thatcher, M.; Emmerson, K. (2019): Foresight must guide geoengineering research and development. In: Nature Climate change 9 (5), S. 342. DOI: 10.1038/s41558-019-0467-z.

"Large-scale climate geoengineering will probably be required to limit warming to well below 2 °C, in line with the 2015 Paris Agreement. While geoengineering has long been included in the development of many (future) low-carbon emissions pathways, key questions remain about the efficacy and ability of such climate intervention to fulfil its anticipated role in limiting warming. As such, the social license for geoengineering has not been granted for research using unbounded large-scale experiments, never mind full-scale deployment."
