An essay is presented on the regulatory challenges presented by climate engineering as a potential set of response to the threat of anthropogenic climate change, with . It explores the history and proposed forms of climate engineering such as the separation of solar radiation management (SRM) climate engineering from carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and deployment from research. Furthermore, examines the potential of SRM Governance Initiative to regulate SRM research.
