Kiel Earth Instiute: Large-Scale Intentional Intervention s into the Climate System? Assessing the Climate Engineering Debate (full release in English)
German Scoping Survey on CE in now available in English. The Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) has an interdisciplinary team of scientists commissioned, to assamble the current state of knowledge on climate engineering. As a result is given, along with six special studies of the natural sciences, law, economics, politics, social sciences and ethics, an integrative overall report as a joint effort of all authors. The Kiel Earth Institute as an involved institution has coordinated scientists and serves as editor of the findings.
