Solar Radiation Modification ‐ A “Silver Bullet” Climate Policy for Populist and Authoritarian Regimes?

Populist and authoritarian leaders are increasingly coming to power in large countries. They often have a climate sceptic approach and do away with mitigation policies when coming to power.

The politics and governance of research into solar geoengineering

Research into solar geoengineering, far from being societally neutral, is already highly intertwined with its emerging politics. This review outlines ways in which research conditions or constructs

Emerging Technologies in Biodiversity Governance: Gaps and Opportunities for Action

Numerous emerging technologies have potentially far-reaching impacts on the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. Simultaneously, biodiversity increasingly serves as an input for novel

    The Ethics of “Geoengineering” the Global Climate
  • 2019
ABSTRACT Over the past decade or so, several commentators have called for mission-driven research programs on solar geoengineering, also known as solar radiation management (SRM) or climate

The national security implications of solar geoengineering: an Australian perspective

ABSTRACT Given current emissions trends an increase in global temperatures in excess of 2°C is highly likely in the coming century. In this context, it seems increasingly probable that states may

An Earth System Governance Perspective on Solar Geoengineering

Abstract Solar geoengineering appears capable of reducing climate change and the associated risks. In part because it would be global in effect, the governance of solar geoengineering is a central

Not Just Carbon: Capturing All the Benefits of Forests for Stabilizing the Climate from Local to Global Scales

This report summarizes the science on the biophysical effects of deforestation on climate stability and explores the policy implications of the resulting impacts at three scales: global climate

Communication of solar geoengineering science: Forms, examples, and explanation of skewing

Although a judicious use of solar radiation modification (SRM, or solar geoengineering) appears able to reduce climate change, SRM would create risks of its own. How results and conclusions are

State Responsibility for Environmental Harm from Climate Engineering

Some have proposed that climate-engineering methods could be developed to offset climate change. However, whilst some of these methods, in particular a form of solar-radiation management referred to

Does the “No-Harm’Rule” Have a Role in Preventing Transboundary Harm and Harm to the Global Atmospheric Commons from Geoengineering?

Solar Radiation Management (SRM) geoengineering poses a significant risk of transboundary and global atmospheric harm. How might international law regulate the future use of SRM? We explore how the
