House of Commons - The Regulation of Geoengineering ...
09-10 Session Commons publication
The regulatory regimes for geoengineering should then be tailored accordingly. Those techniques scoring low against the criteria should be subject to no additional regulation to that already in place, while those scoring high would be subject to additional controls. So for example, at the low end of the scale are artificial trees and at the high end is the release of large quantities of ...

09-10 Session Commons publication
Principle 1: Geoengineering to be regulated as a public good. While the involvement of the private sector in the delivery of a geoengineering technique should not be prohibited, and may indeed be encouraged to ensure that deployment of a suitable technique can be effected in a timely and efficient manner, regulation of such techniques should be undertaken in the public interest by the ...

geoengineering research and open publication of results and the development of governance arrangements before the de ployment of geoengineering techniques. The UN is the route by which, eventually, we envisage the regulatory framework operating but first the UK and other governments need to push geoengineering up the international agenda and get processes moving. This inquiry was innovative in ...

House of Commons - The Regulation of Geoengineering ...
09-10 Session Commons publication
Geoengineering describes activities specifically and deliberately designed to effect a change in the global climate with the aim of minimising or reversing anthropogenic (that is human caused) climate change. Geoengineering covers many techniques and technologies but splits into two broad categories: those that remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere such as sequestering and locking carbon ...

Definition of geoengineering. 2. We conclude that weather techniques such as cloud seeding should not be included within the definition of geoengineering used for the purposes of activities designed to effect a change in the global climate with the aim of minimising or reversing anthropogenic climate change. (Paragraph 28) 3. In our view, geoengineering as currently defined covers such a range ...

Geoengineering techniques currently subject to regulation. 35. The Royal Society pointed out that: CDR technologies could mostly be adequately controlled by existing national and international institutions and legislation. Many of the technologies are closely related to familiar existing technologies. Air capture technologies are very similar to those of carbon capture and storage; and this is ...

Given geoengineering will manipulate the climate at a global level, all global citizens should in principle be considered stakeholders in the development and implementation of geoengineering techniques and their regulation. Nevertheless, the expertise and tools required for the research and application of such techniques are likely to be within the direct control of relatively few while the ...

If biochar is geoengineering, it certainly does not bring out the kinds of direct international security concerns that are brought out by the capacity to do stratosphere solar radiation management, and the reason is all about leverage and money. The fact is that with the right technology it may be cheap enough, through engineering the stratosphere, that literally individual human beings may ...

National geoengineering research that fails to make or meet such commitments could spark international mistrust over future intentions, and disrupt the already inadequate progress toward essential mitigation. 5. This remainder of this memorandum describes the two main categories of geoengieering, the main stages of research that may be undertaken for solar radiation management (SRM ...
