Miranda Boettcher (Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies, Potsdam & Freie University Berlin). Cracking the Climate Engineering Governance Code. Description Calls for governance of the development of heterogeneous technological proposals for intentionally intervening into the global climate system, often collectively termed ‘climate engineering’ (CE), are currently picking up speed. However, so far there has been little empirical analysis of the discursive structure underpinning this debate.
