A Solar Geoengineering and Global Income Inequality Paradox

Exploring heterogeneity in the economic impacts of solar geoengineering is a fundamental step towards understanding the risk tradeoff associated with a geoengineering option. To evaluate the impacts of solar geoengineering and greenhouse gas-driven climate change on equal terms, we apply macroeconomic impact models that have been widely applied to climate change impacts assessment. Consistent reduction in inter-country inequality can inform discussions of the distribution of impacts of solar geoengineering, a topic of concern in geoengineering ethics and governance debates.

Predicting the Future is Risky: A Panel Discussion

Effective policies, wise investments, informed decisions, and smart designs all require some consideration of possible future conditions. This may take the form of a statistical forecast, model simulation, projection of trends, or simply an educated guess. However, the future is inherently uncertain, so perfectly accurate predictions are impossible. How can we characterize and plan for what we do not know? Does a detailed and honest characterization of forecast uncertainty lead to better decisions?
