Trade-offs between mitigation and climate engineering: an interdisciplinary approach

TOMACE contributes to the hitherto expert-dominated climate-engineering debate by conducting detailed analyses of lay persons’ acceptance of solar radiation management and Bioenergy Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS). It focusses on the effects of these technologies on people’s willingness to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
