    "Cirrus seeding: Understanding the complicated little sister of stratospheric geoengineering"

    Climate engineering is a potential means to offset the climate warming caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gases. The most prominent and best researched climate engineering approach to alter Earth’s radiation balance is the injection of atmospheric aerosol particles or their precursor gases into the stratosphere, where these particles reflect solar radiation back to space. Climate engineering through cirrus cloud thinning, in contrast,...

    "Linking Solar Geoengineering and Emissions Abatement Policies: Strategically"

    Resolving an International Climate Policy Dilemma Solar geoengineering may be able to significantly reduce climate-change risks, but raises sharp controversy. The leading cause of controversy is the concern that its research, development, or use might inappropriately displace efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions. A possible response would be to strategically link the international policies of abatement and solar geoengineering. I expand on this idea, including by disaggregating states based on...
