Abstract

Geoengineering is a technological response to the challenge of anthropogenic climate change and the failure of political mechanisms to achieve substantial progress in controlling atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations. Because it derives from the same policy framework as current global warming initiatives, it suffers from the same deficiencies. In particular, the geoengineering dialog to date fails to understand the full power of technology systems, and, because of its singleminded focus on global climate change, inadequately defines the class of technologies included in the geoengineering category.
