Abstract

It has been argued that geoengineering research shouldn’t be pursued because of a slippery slope from research to problematic deployment. The paper urges a new interpretation of these arguments as precautionary arguments. This interpretation helps us better appreciate the potential normative force of the worries and their potential policy relevance.
