Geoengineeringthe climate
Science, governance and uncertainty
September 2009
Cover image from DaisyBall model, by Ginger Booth, http://gingerbooth.com, Copyright © Yale University 1997–2008. The coverimage comes from the Daisyworld model developed by Dr. James Lovelock and Professor Andrew Watson, both Fellows of theRoyal Society. This conceptual model illustrates the tight coupling between climate and the biosphere through the connectionbetween surface re
ectivity and temperature—white daisies re
ect more and absorb less solar radiation than do dark daisiesthereby keeping the Earth cooler. This is the principle on which Geoengineering by the re
ection of solar radiation is based.Daisyworld has been instrumental in drawing attention to the tight link between the Earth’s surface climate and the presenceof living organisms. See: Watson, A. J. and Lovelock, J.E. (1983). Biological homeostasis of the global environment: the parableof Daisyworld. Tellus 35B, 284–289.
