Briefing Paper on Climate Engineering

September 30, 2016

Climate engineering (also often referred to as climate geoengineering or simply geoengineering) is defined as large-scale, deliberate intervention in the Earth system to counteract climate change. Two major sets of techniques are usually included: those that could remove significant amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (carbon dioxide removal—CDR), and those that might offset the amount of incoming solar radiation in order to cool the planet (solar radiation management—SRM). Recently there has been increasing discussion about the potential development and deployment of climate engineering.
