„What is fascinating is that if you go to the actual book review and read the full discussion, you will see that Nordhaus wonders whether scientists[nbsp]should even be conducting cursory experiments to learn more about[nbsp]geoengineering options.“
Public Event at the Berlin Symposium: Pointing Science: Climate Engineering – Views Onto a Man-Made Climate
Public Event – July 9 • 19:00 h – at the Symposium
„On thursday evening we invite you to take part in our ‚Pointing science‘ knowledge show ‚Climate Engineering • Views Onto a Man-Made Climate‘ . Pointing science is a media-based show, in which experts as well as the audience are able to participate. The direction of the discussion is determined by the audience, who votes for topics using laser pointers. The combination of scientific expertise, entertaining elements and an active audience enables a lively transfer of complex and diverse knowledge.“

German book chapter on climate engineering and its implications and problems of planning.
Bellamy, Rob (2015): A Sociotechnical Framework for Governing Climate Engineering. In Science, Technology [&] Human Values. DOI 10.1177/0162243915591855.
„This article explores the governance implications of a Deliberative Mapping project that, unlike other governance principles, have emerged from an extensive process of reflection and reflexivity. In turn, the project has made significant advances in addressing the current deficit of responsibly defined criteria for shaping governance propositions.“
„Sara Terry is a media force of nature; an award-winning filmmaker, documentary photographer, and journalist. […] Terry: […] I dove deep into geo-engineering for a while, because I was fascinated by all the work that’s going on in that field to try to adapt to climate change – and because it’s very controversial among climate change researchers. „
Lu, Lu; et al. (2015): Microbial Electrolytic Carbon Capture for Carbon Negative and Energy Positive Wastewater Treatment
Lu, Lu; Huang, Zhe; Rau, Greg H.; Ren, Zhiyong Jason (2015): Microbial Electrolytic Carbon Capture for Carbon Negative and Energy Positive Wastewater Treatment. In Environmental science [&] technology. DOI 10.1021/acs.est.5b00875.
„Energy and carbon neutral wastewater management is a major goal for environmental sustainability, but current progress has only reduced emission rather than using wastewater for active CO2 capture and utilization. We present here a new microbial electrolytic carbon capture (MECC) approach to potentially transform wastewater treatment to a carbon negative and energy positive process.“

„The Global South is relatively under-represented in public deliberations about solar radiation management (SRM), a controversial climate engineering concept. This Perspective analyses the outputs of a deliberative exercise about SRM, which took place at the University of California-Berkeley and involved 45 mid-career environmental leaders, 39 of whom were from the Global South.“
Moreno-Cruz, Juan B. (2015): Mitigation and the geoengineering threat. In Resource and Energy Economics 41, pp. 248–263. DOI 10.1016/j.reseneeco.2015.06.001.
„This paper examines the economic issues introduced when geoengineering becomes available in a standard model where strategic interaction leads to suboptimal mitigation. Geoengineering introduces the possibility of technical substitution away from mitigation, but it also affects the strategic interaction across countries: mitigation decisions directly affect geoengineering decisions.“
On CE and other technologies. „Jack Stilgoe: I was speaking yesterday at the Circling the Square conference in Nottingham and asked to say something about responsible innovation. Here’s the gist of what I said. I’ve been told to issue a SPOILER ALERT!, although I don’t think I’m giving away much of Jurassic World in harvesting its narrative.“
