Trisos, Christopher H.; et al. (2018): Potentially dangerous consequences for biodiversity of solar geoengineering implementation and termination
Trisos, Christopher H.; Amatulli, Giuseppe; Gurevitch, Jessica; Robock, Alan; Xia, Lili; Zambri, Brian (2018): Potentially dangerous consequences for biodiversity of solar geoengineering implementation and termination. In Nat Ecol Evol 355. DOI: 10.1038/s41559-017-0431-0.
"Here, we assess the effects of the rapid implementation, continuation and sudden termination of geoengineering on climate velocities—the speeds and directions that species would need to move to track changes in climate. Compared to a moderate climate change scenario (RCP4.5), rapid geoengineering implementation reduces temperature velocities towards zero in terrestrial biodiversity hotspots. [...] Rapid geoengineering termination would significantly increase the threats to biodiversity from climate change."
