IAGP article is first to review geoengineering appraisals

Rob Bellamy, Jason Chilvers, Naomi Vaughan and Tim Lenton have a new paper published in WIREs Climate Change. The article is the first to review appraisals of deliberate large-scale interventions in the Earth's climate system designed to moderate anthropogenic climate change. The systematic review identifies substantial variability between different appraisals' outputs that originate from usually hidden 'framing' conditions relating to contextual and methodological choices. Such framing conditions are shown to promote a premature 'closing down' on particular geoengineering proposals, conflicting with the need for more anticipatory, responsible and reflexive governing of an 'upstream' domain of science and technology.
