During a November 7-9 Problems of Adaptation to Climate Change in Moscow, scientists and policymakers called for the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change to develop a protocol on geoengineering. The group cited increasing attention to the possibility of using global scale manipulation of the climate to prevent catastrophic impacts from warming. A conference statement calling for the protocol will be presented at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change plenary November 18-19 and the annual Conference of Parties November 28-December 9. The IPCC is expected to include the first comprehensive review of the risks and benefits of geoengineering in its 2014 Fifth Assessment Report, and is working in conjunction with Rutgers University on a comparison project.
