Lockley, A. (2019): Distributed Governance of Solar Radiation Management Geoengineering: A Possible Solution to SRM’s ‘Free-Driver’ Problem?

Lockley, Andrew. 2019. “Distributed Governance of Solar Radiation Management Geoengineering: A Possible Solution to SRM’s ‘Free-Driver’ Problem?” Frontiers of Engineering Management, October. https://doi.org/10.1007/s42524-019-0055-y.

‌"We propose a novel distributed governance model of consensually-constrained unilateralism: Countries’ authority is limited to each state’s fraction of the maximum realistic intervention (e.g., pre-industrial temperature). We suggest a division of authority based on historical emissions (Rocha et al., 2015)—noting alternatives (e.g., population). To aid understanding, we offer an analogue: An over-heated train carriage, with passenger-controlled windows. We subsequently discuss the likely complexities, notably Coasian side-payments. Finally, we suggest further research: Algebraic, bot and human modeling; and observational studies."
