Rabitz, Florian (2016): Going rogue? Scenarios for unilateral geoengineering

Rabitz, Florian (2016): Going rogue? Scenarios for unilateral geoengineering. In Futures 84, pp. 98–107. DOI 10.1016/j.futures.2016.11.001.

"I develop a conceptual framework for the study of unilateral geoengineering which distinguishes different types of actors, their capacities and decision-making contexts. Focusing on Ocean Iron Fertilization and Stratospheric Aerosol Injections, I develop several short- and long-term scenarios in which actors are conceivably both willing and able to deploy those technologies on a scale sufficient for impacting the climate system. Beyond being the first paper to develop a systematic approach to unilateral geoengineering, I show that some scenarios which stir public concern are implausible."
