Introduces the Climate Engineering Argument Map by G. Betz and S. Cacean
Here are a selection of relevant downloads and further reading regarding geoengineering and its governance.
"What if the world left it too long to take action on global climate change? Is there a way we could somehow cool the planet before an environmental crisis occurs?"
"Inventors have long been protecting their ideas by filing patent applications on new technologies. But is it appropriate for researchers or companies to own the intellectual property rights to climate-altering technologies?"
"Marine cloud brightening: it’s a concept that has been floated in climate engineering discussions for some time. But what are the moral implications of this geoengineering technology, and how likely is it to be implemented?"
"The ability of the climate models submitted to the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project 5 (CMIP5) database to simulate the Northern Hemisphere winter climate following a large tropical volcanic eruption is assessed."
