C2G Policy Brief: Governing Solar Radiation Modification (2nd Edition)

C2G Policy Brief: Governing Solar Radiation Modification. 26 November 2019 – 2nd Edition.

„Current commitments made under the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change are insufficient to keep global warming below 2°C, and according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), much greater ambition is necessary. In response, scientists and others are considering the viability of climate-altering technologies known as Solar Radiation Modification (SRM). These aim to reflect solar radiation (sunlight) back into space or allow more heat to escape Earth’s atmosphere in order to counter some of the effects of climate change by reducing the global temperature.“
