War on Climate: Huffington Post interview with Dane Scott, David Keith, Matt Watson

The interviews below were all conducted during the Ethics of Solar Radiation Management Workshop at the University of Montana (Oct 2010). Interviewees were asked to comment on the ethics of solar radiation management based on the following prompts:  

  1. Under what conditions could you imagine proceeding with field testing and eventual deployment of SRM?
  2. What are the most challenging ethical issues that SRM presents?
  3. What steps should be taken immediately to address these challenges?
