- Climate engineering: exploring nuances and consequences of deliberately altering the Earth’s energy budget | Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences December 2, 2014
Five years ago, the Royal Society published a report titled Geoengineering the Climate  summarizing many of the issues associated with CE. The Society’s article-tracking software records a large number of downloads and citations to an earlier Phil Trans A theme issue on Geoengineering  (to which a significant number of the authors involved in this Theme Issue also contributed). This fact underlines the wide scientific concern about the issues raised by global warming, and an appreciation of the urgency of charting a credible path to avoid some of its worst consequences, should efforts to shift to a very-low-carbon society progress too slowly (as appears likely). There is not yet, however, a good understanding of CE and the nuances which need to be explored.
