12.Oliver Morton also wrote "In the past year, climate scientists have shown new willingness to study (geoengineering) although many will do so --simply to show--that all such paths are dead-end streets". 13. At the most local level there is evidence of this happening. The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council has recently allocated £3 million to research into geoenginering. This ...

A lot of these co-benefits are not provided by alternative emissions reduction methods such as geoengineering or carbon capture. 2. What major scientific uncertainties persist in understanding the effects of nature-based solutions and affect their inclusion in carbon accounting, and how can these unce rtainties be addressed?

09-10 Session Commons publication
Trenberth's reference to "geoengineering" here includes reducing GHG emissions. In other words, Trenberth stated that the flaws in the climate community's understanding of climatic forces that are exposed by the lack of warming is so fundamental - and the extent of natural variability must be so great - that it cannot be demonstrated that reducing GHG emissions will reduce warming. Abject Lack ...

For example, they engaged the public on the controversial topic of geoengineering.

House of Commons - Corrected Evidence - HC1739-ii
10-12 Session Commons publication
Personally, I think the clearest issue with the sunlight reflection geoengineering is that, once you are doing it and you still have the greenhouse gas concentration there and you have the temperature back towards pre-industrial or whatever you decided was the right level, the present temperature or whatever, you have effectively made a commitment. As long as you do not tackle the greenhouse ...

POSTnote. Geo-engineering research, March 2009. Sunday, 01 March, 2009. There is evidence that efforts to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases may be insufficient to avert unacceptable levels of climate change; global emission levels are currently higher than even the highest scenario produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2001).

Although EAC has rejected geoengineering as a long-term solution for tackling climate change, what we are proposing is a localised intervention and short-term solution specifically to reverse changes to temperature caused by climate change – i.e. returning . 1. the climate system towards an earlier and safer state – as a temporary measure while a long-term solution is being brought into ...

Direct, often technological, solutions to specific hazards may address part of the threat, but do surprisingly little to reduce risk if underlying cross-domain vulnerabilities are not ...

The Government has commissioned modelling of the effects of SRM on climate in the past, but no such work is underway at present, as the World Climate Research Programme’s (WCRP’s) Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP) is investigating such effects, and they will be reviewed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in its 6th Assessment Report.

Then Fiona Fox from the Science Media Centre suggested that we should also be looking at shale gas and geoengineering as areas where the public would need to be engaged in terms of risk management. As the Minister knows, I have a particular interest in deep geothermal as well, which is quite a familiar technology in some parts of the world but relatively new in the UK. What steps are DECC ...
