„Many argue that market and techo-based approaches are the way to combat climate change. They push for carbon taxing and trading, geo-engineering, and renewable energy without considering the fact that the system itself is incompatible with sustainability.“

Preston, Christopher J. (2014): Framing an ethics of climate management for the anthropocene. In Climatic Change. DOI: 10.1007/s10584-014-1182-4.
„The paper considers geoengineering alongside various other anthropogenic forcing activities and discusses what the climate imperative would say about each of them. On this analysis, GHG and black carbon reductions remain a priority.“

„Stratospheric injection of sulphate aerosols has been advocated as an emergency geoengineering measure to tackle dangerous climate change, or as a stop-gap until atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are reduced. But it may not prove to be the game-changer that some imagine.“

Fernow, Hannes (2014): Der Klimawandel im Zeitalter technischer Reproduzierbarkeit. Climate Engineering zwischen Risiko und Praxis. Wiesbaden: Springer. (English: Climate Change in the Age of Technical Reproducibility – Climate Engineering between Risk and Practice)
German philosophical work on CE. „Hannes Fernow interdisciplinary intruduces the topic of[nbsp]climate engineering. It integrates as part of a political hermeneutic philosophy of science, technology, philosophy and environmental ethics arguments in the historically established perceptions of risk and nature, and shows that the impact of technological changes in climate can not be reliably predicted.„
Humpenöder, Florian; et al. (2014): Investigating afforestation and bioenergy CCS as climate change mitigation strategies
Humpenöder, Florian; Popp, Alexander; Dietrich, Jan Philip; Klein, David; Lotze-Campen, Hermann; Bonsch, Markus et al. (2014): Investigating afforestation and bioenergy CCS as climate change mitigation strategies. In Environ. Res. Lett. 9 (6), p.[nbsp]64029. DOI: 10.1088/1748-9326/9/6/064029.
„In this paper, we investigate two land-based climate change mitigation strategies for carbon removal: (1) afforestation and (2) bioenergy in combination with carbon capture and storage technology (bioenergy CCS). In our approach, a global tax on GHG emissions aimed at ambitious climate change mitigation incentivizes land-based mitigation by penalizing positive and rewarding negative CO2 emissions from the land-use system.“

Curry, Charles L.; Sillmann, Jana; Bronaugh, David; Alterskjaer, Kari; Cole, Jason N. S.; Ji, Duoying et al. (2014): A multimodel examination of climate extremes in an idealized geoengineering experiment. In J. Geophys. Res. Atmos. 119 (7), pp.[nbsp]3900–3923. DOI: 10.1002/2013JD020648.
„Temperature and precipitation extremes are examined in the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project experiment G1, wherein an instantaneous quadrupling of CO2 from its preindustrial control value is offset by a commensurate reduction in solar irradiance.“
„The Hutchison medal was recently awarded to a multinational group of academics*, lead by Phillip Williamson, for their paper ‚Ocean fertilization for geoengineering: a review of effectiveness, environmental impacts and emerging governance‘.“
