Research questions

  • Research methodology: anticipate potential future of climate engineering (CE) to assess present
  • If CE is done, how could it be regulated, how could some party doing CE be held liable?
  • Which type of regulation can set (economic) incentives to conduct carbon dioxide removal, while
    avoiding negative ecosystem effects?
  • Is it possible to establish a scientific basis for helding someone liable for adverse effects of solar
    radiation management (SRM) on others? (this includes detection and attribution)
  • How can the diverging interests of different parties be aligned by means of a regulatory system
    for SRM, including regional climate engineering?
