Critical response to Ricke, Katharine L.; et al. (2013). „Social authoritarianism may be the way to go“
„NASA’s international experience will enable researchers to explore the options fully, and to develop the most effective technologies for reducing this ongoing experiment’s risks.“
Luokkanen, M.; Huttunen, S.; Hilden, M. (2013): Geoengineering, news media and metaphors: Framing the controversial. In: Public Understanding of Science. (in press)
„We show that metaphors strengthen a policy-related storyline, while metaphors are rarer in purely descriptive accounts.“
Media response to Ricke, Katharine L.; et al. (2013). „This type of proposed solution carries with it a number of uncertainties, however, including geopolitical questions about who would be in charge of the activity and its goals.“
