At the best climate engineering is a supplement, and it could be that we shouldn't do it. Our work is to inform better choices and it would actually be very useful to know for sure it didn't work. Right now there are heads of state and others in leadership who are explicitly assuming it could work, that it's there if we need it. But let's say we found something deep in the climate models which suggested we were overoptimistic about solar geoengineering, then I would say 'abandon it'. That would be great. I'd love to publish that.feedback

If you want to be confident to get to 1.5 degrees you need to have solar geo-engineering. I don't think it's science fiction ... to me it's normal atmospheric science.feedback

We are not unalterably committed to doing the experiment. We're headed down the road of doing that, but depending on what an advisory committee says and what we learn technically we're certainly willing to stop. Our long term goal is to build a sustainable effort in solar geoengineering research that allows us to say more about ways it might actually provide public benefit.feedback
