Call for Input on a Five-Year Plan for Research on Climate Intervention

Larry Hinzman August 23, 2022

The following announcement is shared on behalf of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

In the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), in coordination with relevant Federal agencies, was directed by Congress to develop a five-year “scientific assessment of solar and other rapid climate interventions in the context of near-term climate risks and hazards. The report shall include: (1) the definition of goals in relevant areas of scientific research; (2) capabilities required to model, analyze, observe, and monitor atmospheric composition; (3) climate impacts and the Earth's radiation budget; and (4) the coordination of Federal research and investments to deliver this assessment to manage near-term climate risk and research in climate intervention.” OSTP recognizes the importance of this research topic.

With the assistance of the U.S. Global Change Research Program, OSTP is offering a brief comment period to enable public input while also providing a timely response to Congress. The focus of this plan will be on research associated with climate intervention, and comments are being requested in that context only. Input should be narrative only (i.e., no figures, graphics, or attachments), should be limited to 1,000 words, should respond to the Congressional direction above, and should relate either to one of the four categories listed in legislative language or more generally to climate intervention research.

Input must be submitted by 11:59 PM ET on September 9, 2022.  Individuals interested in submitting comment should visit contribute.globalchange.gov.
