Mitigation and the Geoengineering Threat
Recent scientific advances have introduced the possibility of engineering the climate system to lower ambient temperatures without lowering greenhouse gas concentrations. This possibility has created an intense debate ...
Climate Policy Under Uncertainty: A Case for Solar Geoengineering
Solar Radiation Management (SRM) has two characteristics that make it an attractive means for managing climate risk: it is quick and it is cheap. SRM cannot, however, exactly offset CO₂-driven climate change, and its use ...
Long-Term Environmental Problems and Strategic Intergenerational Transfers
