CSSN Scholars Kevin Surprise and Prakash Kashwan were quoted in Earther speaking about the recent National Academies report on solar geoengineering.

“With the inclusion of the National Academies report in this growing field, it’s clear that solar geoengineering can no longer be considered on the fringes of climate policy or a futuristic proposal that we can worry about down the road,” said Kevin Surprise.

“Are you designing your research to inform the global society of the widest possible set of risk and different extent to which different types of risks may be unfolding by geoengineering program?”  – Prakash Kashwan.
