  1. Systems Thinking for Geoengineering Policy

    How to reduce the threat of dangerous climate change by embracing uncertainty and failure

    By Robert Chris

    Series: The Earthscan Science in Society Series

    Even by the scientists most closely associated with it, geoengineering – the deliberate intervention in the climate at global scale to mitigate the effects of climate change – is perceived to be risky. For all its potential benefits, there are robust differences of opinion over the wisdom of such...
